Here is one of the best St. Patrick’s Day recipes you’ll ever try: St. Patrick’s Day Corned Beef and Cabbage Salad. Inspired by the traditional St. Patrick’s Day meal of corned beef and cabbage, and the fact that March 24 is American Diabetes Association Alert Day, here’s a chopped salad that’s fresh, light and packed with flavor.
Unlike the classic one-pot boiled meal, our one-bowl delight is heavy on vegetables and light on meat. All in all, it’s a diabetes-friendly dish that’s hearty, healthy and less than 400 calories a serving.
12 oz cooked corned beef, trimmed of fat and chopped
3 cups Yukon Gold potatoes, chopped and cooked
2 cups green beans, trimmed, blanched and chopped
2 cups green cabbage, sliced
1 Tbsp chopped chives
½ cup Dijon mustard
½ cup whole grain mustard
¼ cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp molasses
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp red pepper flakes
In a small bowl, mix together the mustards, brown sugar, molasses, cider vinegar, garlic and red pepper flakes.
Arrange the corned beef, potatoes, green beans and cabbage on a serving platter. Drizzle with ½ cup vinaigrette and top with the chives. Serves 4.
Healthy and filled with protein, this meal is sure to be filling and keep you energized. You’ll probably find yourself making it for meals throughout the year!
