At Feed Your Vitality, our Paleo meal delivery company, this was a crowd pleaser every time we made it.

Try the corned beef cooked according to the directions in the recipe or try it on your smoker.  Once we smoked it at my house, the family was hooked!  Now it’s the only way we prepare it!  But, since this recipe was such a hit with our customers, I don’t want to take the “traditional” St. Patrick’s Day meal away from anyone! I hate to mess with the #luckoftheirish

Thousand Island Dressing Instructions

  • Place coconut milk in the freezer while you get the other ingredients together. The milk needs to be SUPER COLD (but not frozen).
  • Combine garlic, tomato paste, mustard, capers, pickles, onions, salt and pepper in a large bowl and blend for 30 seconds. Slowly add cold milk and blend for 1 minute. Then VERY slowly add olive oil while blender is running. This will thicken up like a very thick ranch dressing.
