    Cookgirl's Note:

    An Irish-inspired salad recipe I tested and assembled for our upcoming annual St. Patrick's Day meal. Use any (mixed) salad greens of your choice. One shamrock-shaped cookie cutter (not too large) is required for this recipe. Feel free to substitute green beans and yellow/wax beans for the asparagus.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 cups mixed greens (or you can use one specific lettuce or greens of choice)
    • 1 medium granny smith apple, unpeeled, diced small (use a small amount of lemon juice or vinegar and toss to stop the browning)
    • 12 -16 asparagus spears (ends trimmed) or 12 -16 asparagus tips (ends trimmed)
    • fresh mint, minced (about 2 tablespoons)
    • 2 ounces irish cheddar cheese, cubed small (we love Irish Dubliner)
    • 1 small parsnips or 1 small carrot, peeled and grated
    • 1 -2 large green bell pepper
    • 3 tablespoons raisins (golden or dark, currants can be substituted, too)



    1. 1
      Note: I used leftover roasted asparagus spears from the previous night's dinner. Roasted would be preferred over steaming (my personal opinion.).
    2. 2
      Whisk the salad dressing ingredients together and refrigerate. Best prepared 1 hour in advance of serving.
    3. 3
      Combine the salad ingredients in a bowl except for the bell pepper and raisins. Toss.
    4. 4
      Take a shamrock-shaped cookie cutter and cut out shapes from the green bell pepper. (You may need an extra bell pepper to do this step.) How to: first slice the bell pepper lengthwise from stem to bottom. Remove seeds and membrane. Cut out shapes.
    5. 5
      Divide the salad onto [4] salad plates. Garnish with the shamrock-shaped slices of bell pepper; add the raisins.
