Funny, I always make potato salad with EITHER mayonnaise or Miracle Whip. I never thought of combining the two! This is very good. The sour cream adds a nice touch too. I added a few minced sweet pickles. But it's the dressing that makes the dish! Thanks, Donna!
To whoever tries this recipe, you use BOTH mayo AND Miracle Whip... it really makes a nice creamy dressing.
Donna, as far as I'm concerned, your Mom knew the secret to the perfect potato salad! This was delicious! I omitted the onion, but added the green onion. Omitted the paprika and the parsley and made my own addition of 2 tbs sweet pickle relish. The combination of the sour cream, Miracle Whip and the Hellman's mayo was the perfect dressing for this salad. Thank you for posting this one, Donna. I will be using your Mom's method from now on! :)
I would give this 6 stars if i could!!! This is the greatest potato salad i have ever eaten!!!! I REALLY do not like mayo at all and still could not stop eating this. Next time i will mash up the potatoes completly- but that is my preference :) thanks for posting such a great recipe!!!
Hi Donna; Superb potato salad. Yes, your Mom certainly knew what to to to make it taste so good. My recipe is very similar to yours. The Miracle Whip and Mayonnaise is great, never gave it a thought as I always use Miracle Whip. I added a few thinly sliced radishes and some Dry Mustard for a little pizzaz. Thanks much for your posting. "Uncle Bill"
I added some chopped sweet pickle but followed to the letter otherwise. GREAT TATER SALAD! The mixture of the MW, mayo and sour cream was really tasty. I would have never thought of mixing them.
I made this recipe for my husbands christmas luncheon. I had been doing a search and this is one that was suggested. I have never had a potato salad without mustard and I normally would not use miracle whip but I gave it a shot. It was wonderful. So rich & creamy. I had to triple the recipe and thought that he would at least bring something home. No luck. He boasted that there were 3 other potato salads and mine was the first to go. Now I need to make it again for us. Thanks Donna and her Mom!
The dressing combination was wonderful-nice and creamy. I added a couple of sliced radishes for colour -other than that wouldn't change a thing. Will definately make again.
This sounds so so good. My search for a great potato salad recipe has ended. Thanks, Julie
This was really, really good - and so easy. It had everyone's favorite elements, and added up to a wonderful whole. I didn't add parsley or paprika since I am not really a "cook by taste" kind of cook, but I did add some salt and pepper. This was the first time I have bought "Miracle Whip" (store brand) and it was well worth it.
