I went to "The Farmer's Daughter" out on Erwin Highway the other day. I COULD NOT get enough of the Cornbread Salad. I would love to make it myself, but I hear they're pretty tight-lipped about the recipe.

I found a recipe online that calls for cornbread, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and cucumber salad dressing. That sounds pretty close to what they serve there, but I'm not sure that they used cucumber salad dressing.

If anybody else has any ideas about how to make it or happens to know the recipe that they use, could you post it?

I don't know the recipe, but Ingles grocery store has a delicious cornbread salad. I bought it at the deli in Jonesborough, but they may have it here.
I love it, too!
The carrot souffle at the Farmer's Daughter is fantastic, too.

OMG I love the carrot souffle. I made it once. It was good. It didn't have the strong carrot taste that the Farmer's Daughter has but it was still good. Farmer's Daughter's was better!!!

Years ago I was able to get the recipe for those wonderful, super soft, lemon cookies from "Ham and Goody's" in Knoxville. It was a typical iced lemon cookie recipe, but their trick for making them so soft was to slow cook them at a low temp and take them out of the oven before they started to brown. They are AMAZING!

OK, so here's the latest... I made the recipe for cornbread salad that I found online and it's FANTASTIC!!!

I bought two packages of Martha White cornbread mix--made a full 9 inch skillet of cornbread. I set it aside and let it cool.

I mixed two chopped tomatoes, one chopped cucumber, one chopped bell pepper, and one medium chopped red onion--and then added a little salt. I put the veggies in the refrigerator while the cornbread cooked and cooled.

I mixed everything together and then added half a 16 oz. bottle of Cucumber Ranch Dressing and a heaping tablespoon of mayo.

For a little zip I added some freshly ground black pepper.

This stuff will make you slap yo mama it's so good!! And it's even better after it's set in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Ok, sounds great! Would you say it is as good as what you had at Farmer's Daughter? Did it taste really similar? Interested to know. Thanks for sharing!344

I think it tasted very similar to "The Farmer's Daughter". The consistency is exactly like it. And I think the taste, while it might use some adjustments, is VERY close.

Maybe they use a different dressing or their cornbread is made a different way. But the taste that I got from the recipe I found on line is very similar.

I've tried making their salsa and the closest that I can come is to run canned tomatoes, chopped onions, powdered cayenne pepper and salt through a food processor until it's almost completely smooth.

Canned tomatoes don't have skins, usually, and "Monterrey's" salsa doesn't have skins either. That's why I think they use canned tomatoes and grind them until they're smooth.

I have it in my little butterfly recipe book , let me dig it out of the junk drawer. My husband never puts anything back where it goes, just like his women. Lord he can't keep up with anything and just does whatever whenever and whoever. Okay before I get spammed " Offtopic " here is the recipe. I had it right in front of me.

You take 2 pans of cornbread, add a few jalepenos spice it up , some fruit for flavor such as cherries strawberries, mix all that up . You add a boiled over egg to the mix, make sure it doesn't smell rotten because that wouldn't taste too good. Then a piece of raw Tuna that has been left out in the sun too long.

Bake it for about 2 years and you've got CornBread Salad. I love country cooking so much. My granny still cans and cooks and picks and freezes and gardens, boy I miss the good old days. You know the simple days when all you had to do was be with your family all day long, talking, learning, teaching, growing with your family given by God. Life would have been so much simpler back in the days, about right now I'd be getting ready to start the cornbread. I've already got my pinto beans in the pressure cooker. COme on by tonight and we'll have dinner. You bring the salad. I've got the rest on the table.

I donít know about theirs and I use to think it was fantastic could not get enough of it now I have a recipe that I love better

Make your pan of cornbread

you will need cheese (Sharpe is best and shred your own) Kidney beans, Corn, Celery, Tomatoes, Cucumbers (and what ever else vegetables you would like) 1 cup of sour cream, 1 cup of mayo, and 1 pack of dry ranch dressing mix. Bacon bits (I used the real bacon bits) drain the kidney beans to where you only have half the juice. Drain all the juice off the corn. Mix the ranch, mayo, and sour cream (in a separate bowl). I only use the inside and top of the cornbread, I put the cornbread in a big bowel, and mix all the vegetable to taste, a little salt and pepper and then add the cheese and kidney beans including remaining juice and corn. All the ingredients should be in the bowl add the dressing, mix good chill in the fridge, and enjoy!
