Contrary to popular belief, Irish do not eat corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s totally an American thing. Not that I mind, mind you.
This year, give your plate a new green to wear this year than simple cabbage! How about a hearty grilled lettuce and steak salad or some pan roasted cod on spinach basil risotto. Both of these are probably more Irish than corned beef and cabbage.
