    Not only myself, but my entire family is not too fond of mayo....now I have seen a few recipes that sparked my interest but a few have had mayo listed. My whole life my mother has always used Miracle Whip instead of mayo and it kind of stuck with me like instinct since then, so I am not sure on how much of a difference in taste it would be if I subbed the mayo. Or are there any ingredients out there when mixed with the MW instead of mayo that would be a disaster if I were to pull a switcheroo?

    Miracle Whip is a salad dressing it makes. It does have more sugar, vinegar and spices in it than mayonnaise does and less egg yolk content per volume.

    If you make a potato salad I think this is where the taste may be compromised.

    These two products pple often think are the same but they are NOT. One thing to remember is MW has little or NO sugar in it. Now to me mayo has more of a vinegar taste.

    MW to me is sweeter. So I think you would have to look at the recipe your making then decide how much you can and want to alter the taste. You will have pple that just dont care and will use their fav. no matter what. icon_smile.gif

    1. Try to keep an open mind about mayo. You may be happier with a good brand, such as Hellmann's or if you made your own from scratch.

    2. You'll have a better chance of an optimum outcome if the recipes are followed as written.

    By the way, welcome to the forums! It's very nice to meet a new friend. icon_smile.gif

    for what this is worth, i love MW and hubby would rather have mayo. this is sort of a reverse answer to your question. my solution is to use reg mayo for him and add a tsp of splenda or a few drops of stevia to mayo to trick my mind into thinking i am having MW. it usually comes down to a matter of taste, but i agree to make the recipe the first time as written and go from there.

    welcome to the forums, and happy 4th

    IMHO if you prefer the taste of MW you will prefer that taste it in any recipe that uses Mayo. It is just a taste preference.
