Gourmet Club: Cornbread Salad

I have been remiss. Last year, as part of our gourmet club, we had a great dinner with a Soul Food theme and as I am so focused on eating the great food, I often forget to take pictures. Lucky for me, one of the other participants will take pictures and send them. As that is out of my normal process, I put those pictures aside and there they sat for almost a year.

This delay is unfortunate, because this was such a great dish. When it was time for the salad course and it was announced we were going to have Cornbread Salad, I admit I was skeptical. I shouldn’t have been. It was AWESOME!

The flavors just plain worked and the presentation in a bell pepper was a great way to display the dish.
