After St. Patrick's Day, almost everyone has a lot of leftover corned beef. And, delicious as it is, you can't make Corned Beef Hash every day.

Corned Beef Cabbage and Pasta Salad is a wonderful way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day where you live if it's hot outside. It's also a wonderful way to use up leftovers. The salad is crunchy and sweet and savory and salty all at once. You don't need to serve anything else with this salad; it's a complete meal in one bowl.

Store the leftovers, covered, in the fridge for three to four days, if it lasts that long!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (16 ounce) package bow tie pasta
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1  cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup honey mustard
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cups cubed cooked leftover corned beef
  • 3 cups chopped green cabbage
  • 2 cups chopped red cabbage
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, chopped

How to Make It

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, which means the pasta is tender but still has a slight bite in the center. The only way to tell if the pasta is cooked properly is to taste it. 
  2. Put the peas in a colander in the sink and drain the pasta over them. 
  3. While the pasta is cooking, in a large bowl combine the mayonnaise, yogurt, honey mustard, and lemon juice and mix well with a wire whisk. Stir in the drained pasta along with the cabbage, bell peppers, and frozen peas..
  1. Stir gently to coat, then cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours in the refrigerator before serving.
