This was our take to work lunch last week. Very easy and delicious. Had a perfect balance of ingredients. I used half Miracle Whip and half Hellman's mayonnaise because my husband and I haven't settled the war over mayo-vs-MW just yet. We were both satisfied with how this one turned out. Thanks Laura.
