Corned Beef and Cabbage Salad

I saw this recipe in the March 2014 issue of Better Homes and Gardens.  I eat a salad almost everyday for lunch and I was eager to try this recipe for a St. Patrick's Day lunch.  I cut the recipe in fourths for a single serving.  It was very tasty and reminded me of eating a Rueben sandwich in salad form  Here's the recipe:

3 cups packaged cole slaw mix
3 cups baby spinach
1/4 of a small red onion, cut into very thin slivers
1/2 cup buttermilk (I used regular milk and added a little lemon juice)
3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
2 1/2 cups chopped or shredded cooked corned beef
2 ounces sliced Swiss cheese, torn 

In a large bowl toss together cabbage, spinach, and onion. For dressing, in a small bowl whisk together buttermilk, mayonnaise, horseradish, and caraway seeds. Drizzle dressing over greens in bowl; toss to combine. Top with corned beef, cheese, and croutons. 

I am sharing this with:


  1. Sounds good! I 'm going to make this over the weekend. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Kityy.

  2. I love this! It's different twist on St. Pat's and I'll bet that dressing is nice and zesty, perfect for leftover CB:@)

  3. I am with Miss Lynn! I love this! Keeper for sure, Kitty! xo

  4. I love a Reuben and the salad version sounds delicious Kitty! We'll have to try it :)

  5. As usual, your yummy creations have me drooling, Kitty! I can't wait to try this salad...along with all the other delicious recipes you've been sharing. Thanks for those, too.

  6. Hmmm... I have never tried a salad like this, but it sounds quite tasty :) Will definitely have to try it - maybe after St. Patrick's day and there is left-over corned beef :)

    Love to you, friend!

  7. Wow, that looks very tasty. I bought my corned beef brisket yesterday for our St. Paddy's dinner.

  8. Oh my this looks so good!!!! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  9. This sounds amazing, Kitty, and it's such a pretty salad.
    Thanks for the recipe...

  10. Hi Kitty, such a wonderful dish and I like it reminds of you of eating a Reuben sandwich. It all sounds so easy too. Love your Irish saying in blocks. xo

  11. What a tasty salad hubby would love it too. Pinning! Thanks for sharing this delicious idea. XO

  12. What a fantastic idea, usually it's the boiled dinner with corned beef -- I like this new take. Thanks for sharing!

  13. I love salads, especially coleslaw. This recipe looks delicious and I am going to try it.

  14. Hi Kitty,
    Like you I really enjoy a great salad and or soup for lunch and this will be a great recipe to try, it looks awesome. Hope you have been enjoying the past few beautiful days we have had. We are getting ready for the rains this afternoon. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to Ya and thanks so much for sharing your awesome post with Full Plate Thursday!
    Come Back Soon,
    Miz Helen

  15. Hi Kittty,
    This sounds like a fun and unusual twist on corned beef. Thanks for sharing with SYC. Happy St. Patty's!

  16. Aha! So THAT'S how you stay such a Skinny Minnie!!! You eat salads every day for lunch!!! Good for you, Kitty! That's a really healthy practice. I need to go there more often. Too often I skip lunch altogether because I'm so involved in some project around the house. Then I'm famished and end up overeating at dinner. NOT good! I did have a nice spinach-based salad last night that was delish. I think the whiskey sour later negated the healthy properties of the salad, though! :-)

    I can't eat corned beef, but this sure looks good! Mmmm....I remember the days when I could wolf down a half brisket of corned beef in one sitting!!! It's so yummy!!!

    Have a Happy St. Pat's Day!

  17. You know I am admiring your plate too! LOL Glad you are on the Fiesta side!
