Dublin Potato Salad Recipe

Dublin Potato Salad Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 3 large white potatoes (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 cups finely shredded cabbage
  • 12 ounces cooked or canned corned beef, cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill pickle
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup milk


  • 1. Cover potatoes in lightly salted water and boil until tender. Drain, peel and cube. Combine vinegar, sugar, celery seed, mustard seed and 1/2 teaspoon salt; drizzle over still-warm potatoes. Cover and chill.
  • 2. Just before serving, gently fold in cabbage, corned beef, pickle and onion. Combine mayonnaise, milk and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; pour over salad. Gently toss. Serve in cabbage-lined bowl. Yield: 8 servings.

"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!"

"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."

"Dear hearts,

There is such a thing as canned corned beef because I use it all the time. And when potato is plural it is spelled potatoes. Haven't tried this recipe, but it sounds like a winner and can't wait to try it."
