Place cornbread cubes or crumbles in a large salad bowl. Combine tomatoes, onion, green pepper, bacon and relish; add to cornbread. Combine mayonnaise and pickle juice; mix well. Pour over veggies and cornbread. Toss gently. Sprinkle with cheese. Chill until ready to serve.
In a large bowl that will display colors nicely, layer half the crumbled corn bread, one can of drained beans, one can drained corn, 1/2 of the prepared onion, pepper, tomato, 1/2 of the prepared dressing mix, and one cup of the grated cheese. Repeat this with a second round of layers.
Refrigerate and serve as a salad along with whatever main dish you choose. This recipe makes a large amount and is great for large gatherings at holidays or pot lucks.
It is even better on the second day when all of the flavors are mixed. Can be prepared the day before and is great crowd pleaser. Hope that you enjoy!

Combine salad dressing mix, sour cream, and mayonnaise. Set aside. Place half of crumbled cornbread in the bottom of a large serving bowl. Top with half of beans. In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, pepper, and onions: layer half of this mixture over beans. Layer half of cheese, bacon, corn, and reserved salad dressing. Repeat layers using remaining ingredients. Garnish as desired.
Cover and chill 2-3 hours before serving. Yields 10-12 servings.
NOTE: To prepare Tex-Mex cornbread, add 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies and pinch of sage to your favorite cornbread recipe or a prepared mix that yields a 9 inch pan of cornbread.

This is a tried and true recipe from my cousin in Memphis.
1 pkg of dry Ranch Dressing mix
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayo
5 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded & chopped (optional)
1/2 red or green bell pepper, diced
2 green onions, chopped, (or onion of your choice)
1 9x9 inch pan cornbread, cooked
2 (16 oz.) cans black beans or pinto beans (drained & rinsed)
1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/4 cups Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1 (10 oz.) pkg frozen corn, thawed (or 1 can whole kernel)
10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)
Combine dressing mix, sour cream and mayo. Set aside. Combine tomatoes, jalapenos, pepper, onion, beans and corn and set aside. To assemble, crumble half the cornbread in bottom of large bowl. Layer half the tomato mixture, half the dressing, half the cheese. Repeat layers. Chill, covered, in fridge for 2-3 hours before serving. Serves 8. This is pretty when layered and served in a trifle bowl. Can be made a day ahead and will keep for several days in the fridge.

Mix and bake corn bread according to directions and add green chilies, cumin, oregano, and sage. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes. Cool. In small pan, mix dressings together and set aside. Crumble half of cornbread in 9x13 inch pan. Layer with half of the rest of the ingredients in order, beans, dressing mix, corn, tomatoes, peppers, onion, cheese, bacon, then repeat layers. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Very different, but very good!
