Grilled Cabbage and Corned Beef Wedge Salad

Getting reviews...
Rethink the traditional wedge salad with this grilled cruciferous version. Thick wedges of grilled cabbage become slightly charred on the outside and crisp-tender on the inside. And the corned beef crisps up, almost like cracklings.

  1. Preheat a grill for cooking over medium-high heat.
  2. Place the corned beef slices on the grill and cook, flipping halfway through, 4 to 5 minutes. (The slices will contract like bacon and become dry and crisp.) Let cool slightly and tear into bite-sized pieces. (Leave the grill on.) Reserve.
  3. Brush the cabbage wedges generously on all 3 sides with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill, covered, cross-hatching each side, 8 to 10 minutes per side (see Cook's Note). The wedges should have a cooked exterior and a crunchy interior, with dark grill marks and charred edges.
  4. Meanwhile, mix together the buttermilk, mayonnaise, horseradish, mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Reserve.
  5. Gently toss together the parsley, cider vinegar, carrot, scallion, a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste in a medium bowl. Adjust with more vinegar, oil, salt or pepper as needed.
  6. Cut off the core from the cabbages and place the wedges on a platter. Drizzle with about half the buttermilk dressing; serve the rest on the side. Scatter the corned beef cracklings and carrot-parsley salad on top.

Cook’s Note

To make cross-hatch grill marks, arrange items on a grill at a 45-degree angle, then a quarter of the way through the cooking time, give the items a 90-degree turn. Flip halfway through cooking and repeat on the other side.
