Dublin Potato Salad

You may never go back to "plain" potato salad once you've tried this recipe—I haven't! Dublin Potato Salad goes great with lots of different main dishes, but it's also hearty enough to be a meal in itself. When there's time, I prepare it ahead and let the flavors blend. —Kathy Scott, Lingle, Wyoming

    To fnhwg: If you did not make the recipe, you are totally unqualified to review it. Why would you write a review on a recipe you just read? Some people!

    Love, love, love this dish! I had never heard of such a combination, but just reading it sounded awesome. Tried it, family and friends showered compliments and asked for recipe.

    This salad is awesome. I have found you can mix everything all at once and then cover and take along to picnic, BBQ, or church supper. It's great, I get requests for this salad at parties.

    I had to substitute ham, because I simply do not like corned beef. Otherwise I made it according to the recipe, and it's delicious.

    Using cabbage and canned corn beef did not sound appealing to me, but oh, my goodness. This was divine. Perfect combination!

    This was way too salty with the corn beef. It was just OK but will never ever replace my potato salad. Love the old fashion southern potato salad best of all. This may be a good dish to take for our annual St. Patty's day dinner at church though. My husband loves corn beef but said let's not use that recipe again please.

    This was fabulous. People, don't be so narrow minded and you know who you are. I want to give this 5 stars, but the stars are missing from my rating page. :(

     Don't knock it until you try it. I think it sounds different. I am excited to try it.
