" I Hate Miracle Whip, but I Love This Potato Salad That's

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by I Cook Therefore I

I have had people who swear they hate Miracle Whip eat an ENTIRE PLATE of this potato salad. It's my mom's recipe, and you can try it with regular Mayo, but I won't stand by the results because it's so good with the Whip that I've never tried it any other way!

This was pretty good. I substituted 1 1/2 T onion powder for the fresh onions because I don't like raw onions. I also left out the celery because I don't like raw celery. This salad has a bit of a zing. I think that I would like it better if it had more yellow mustard, so next time I make this I might try adding more.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil potatoes until tender but not mushy, set aside to cool.
  2. For dressing: mix all ingredients in a bowl. Any and all of the ingredients can (and should) be adjusted to your taste as my dressing never turns out the same way twice depending on whether I'm in the mood for sweet, peppery, salty, etc.
  3. Mix potatoes, celery, onion, egg, and dressing in a bowl and chill.
  4. Enjoy!
