My BFF DH makes a great potato salad with miracle whip. I wanted to try my own. This did not disappoint. Made for Name that Ingredient.

I should read things better as I just posted a review on another great american potato salad but didn't read it through. It has dill pickle relish instead of sweet. I'm sure some will like dill as well. Anyway, I lost this recipe and am sooo happy to find yours.

After I made it, I realized I'd forgotten the relish, but with the sweetness of the Miracle Whip I think it was perfect just the way it was. With all the spiffed up salad recipes available now, it's nice to have a reliable, classic recipe like this on hand for potlucks & barbecues. Yum.
