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.


  • 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 leftover corned beef (cooked, cubed)
  • 3 cups green cabbage (chopped)
  • 2 cups red cabbage (chopped)
  • 1 red bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper (chopped)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. 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. 

  3. Put the peas in a colander in the sink and drain the pasta over them. 

  4. 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..

  5. Stir gently to coat, then cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours in the refrigerator before serving. 


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