Southwestern Cornbread Salad

I made this tonight. it was interesting. i think i would have liked it better with fat free Catalina dressing instead of the Miracle Whip/Ranch dressing mix.

Southwestern Cornbread Salad
6 oz pkg mexican corn bread
1 egg
2/3 c. skim milk
12 oz chopped romaine lettuce
10 oz tomatoes with green chilies, drained
15 oz black beans, rinsed & drained
11 oz mexicorn
2 slices cooked bacon, chopped
1/2 c. reduced fat shredded mexican blend cheese
2 TB diced green onions
1/2 c. miracle whip free
2 TB ranch dressing mix

Combine corn bread mix, egg and milk. Bake according to package directions; cool and crumble. Place in large bowl. Add lettuce, tomatoes, black beans, corn, bacon, cheese, and onions to bowl. Combine Miracle Whip and dressing mix; add to bowl and toss to combine.
