Zippy Potato Salad for a Crowd

READY IN: 6hrs
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is a creamy sweeter-style dressing that has lots of "zip" and it makes a fair amount, feel free to add in some frozen peas, cooked ham or bacon --- I have listed the servings at 12-14 but that is only estimated --- --- use both mayonnaise and salad dressing for this, plan ahead this salad needs to chill for a minimum of 6 or more hours before serving, prep time includes chilling time.

I used Miracle Whip along with the sour cream and mayo, and the sweet pickle relish in this recipe. First of all there was way too much dressing (2 1/4 c. altogether) in this recipe and it was very mushy. Also, I should have known better than to use the Miracle Whip and relish, because I guess we just don't like it sweet, and it was REAL sweet. Also, I didn't care for the addition of the garlic powder at all. We ended up throwing it in the trash. Sorry Kitten, as I really wanted to like it, but this one won't be made again here. I guess I will stick with my old standby.
