    • 4 medium russet potatoes, quartered
    Creamy Radish Dressing
    • 5 red radishes
    • 1 garlic clove, peeled
    • 1/4cup loosley packed cilantro
    • 1/2cup mayo
    • 1/2cup sour cream (or may sub Greek yogurt)
    • 2tablespoons Dijon mustard
    • 1tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1teaspoon dried dill weed
    • 1/2teaspoon salt
    • 1/4teaspoon pepper
    • 1/2 head cabbage, chopped
    • 10 pitas(I use garlic and sesame wheat)
    • 1/2cup grated Parmesan cheese(for mashed potatoes)
    1. Cook brisket according to package directions (leave fat on, trim after it is cooked).
    2. Meanwhile, add radish dressing ingredients to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Store in refrigerator.
    3. When ready to serve, remove brisket from slow cooker and scrape fat off. Cut across the grain into 1/2″ strips. Transfer corned beef to a plate and cover tightly with foil while you prepare the potatoes and pitas.
    4. Strain potatoes from the slow cooker and reserve 1/4 cup of the slow cooker spiced water. Add potatoes to a large bowl (peel first if desired) and mash with 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and the 1/4 cup reserved slow cooker water. Cover with foil.
    5. Toast pitas by heating a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook approximately 1 minute per side, or until warmed and golden.
    6. Assemble pitas by layering mashed potatoes, corned beef, cabbage then drizzling with dressing.
