Recipe by Jean 7
READY IN: 10mins
YIELD: 1 3/4 cup




  • Measure vinegar into small non-reactive saucepan. (e.g. Stainless steel or teflon coated).
  • Add cornstarch and let soften for a minute or so. Stir with non-metal spoon or whisk to remove any lumps.
  • Add sugar, paprika, garlic and mustard powders.
  • Heat on medium high, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches a full rolling boil.
  • Remove from heat, stirring well. The mixture will be the consistency of thin pudding. It will thicken as it cools.
  • Add to mayonnaise and stir well to combine. Chill for use in a cold salad or use as is in a recipe.
  • NOTE: To make smaller amounts of Miracle Whip, mix at the ratio 1/2 tsp of additive to 1 tbsp of mayonnaise. Store unused portion of additive tightly covered in the fridge.
  • If storing additive, discard any film that develops on top as this will never mix properly into the mayonnaise.
  • Replace sugar with Splenda and/or use Lite Mayonnaise for a diet or diabetic version.
