Oh my Goondess!! this is the exact same way I have been making mine for the last 40 years. Exactly, sometimes if its for camping I add in one or two hot dogs cut into tiny bite size pieces.It is one of the best isn't it. Thanks for putting it down on paper.
This is almost the same way my mother and I make potato salad except we use about 1/4 cup of mustard along with the miracle whip. Anyway, it's a great salad and healthier than the one without the veggies. It's a 5 star potato salad in my book
This is definitely not your typical potatoe salad. I think you could actually serve this as a meal in & of itself (it's very filling)on top of a bed of lettuce, accompanied with some bread or rolls. The flavors are a wonderful blend of mild, sharp & crunch. The next time I make this I'll planning to let it shine all by itself!
