For dressing, in a small bowl combine mayonnaise, sour cream, and salad dressing mix.
In a 3- to 4-quart glass salad bowl or 3-quart rectangular baking dish layer crumbled corn bread and 1 cup of the cheese. Spread with half of the dressing.

If you like, toast the crumbled corn bread. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the corn bread in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake about 10 minutes or until crisp; cool.
