Paddy’s Favorite Salad


Looking for a new way to use up leftovers from your corned beef dinner? I made a delicious salad with homemade dressing that is fabulous. It’s leprechaun approved!
Ingredients:

1 package of coleslaw, or your favorite greens

2 slices of corned beef, sliced lengthwise or into bite size pieces

3-4 carrots

3-4 leftover new potatoes or about a half cup of cooked potatoes cut into bite size pieces

Swiss cheese cut into sticks

Caraway seed for garnish, optional

Paddy’s Dressing:

2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise 

2 Tablespoons ketchup

1-2 teaspoons of horseradish cream sauce, I use Inglehoffer (I find it in the deli or condiment isle of my grocery store)

1 Tablespoon of pickle relish, optional
In a bowl or large plate place your greens, I used coleslaw. Arrange your corned beef, potatoes, carrots and Swiss cheese on top of your greens. Sprinkle with caraway seed if desired. Add your dressing and toss. Enjoy!

Chop Suey Slaw

I love salads and coleslaw. This is a quick, easy coleslaw to put together.

Ingredients:
2 bags of coleslaw mix
2 containers of Greek yogurt (5.3 oz)
1/3 cup Ginger Dressing (I used Makoto)
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 tsp low sodium soy sauce
4 green onions, cut, use both green and white parts
1 1/2 cups of dry roasted peanuts (I used lightly salted)*
1/2 can of chow mein noodles*

In a bowl, whisk together yogurt, ginger dressing, lime juice and soy sauce.

In a large bowl, add packages of slaw and green onions. Toss in salad dressing. Put in the refrigerator for an hour or make a day ahead. When serving, toss in chow mein noodles and peanuts.

*If you are not going to finish salad, dress individual bowls with peanuts and noodles so they do not get soggy in the dressing.

Enjoy!
