Date Format not translating to plain text

I have a Date column which I have formatted as short form Day and Date (example: Mon 18-Sep-2023), which I am trying to convert to plain text.

I know adding +"" to the formula of the other column will convert the Date column into plain text, but it returns as 09/18/23, not "Mon 18-Sep-2023".

Is there any work around for this issue?
