2 1/2 cups
creamy salad dressing, e.g. Miracle Whip ™
prepared yellow mustard
hard-cooked eggs, diced
salt and pepper to taste
I needed something simple--this fit me well for both time and money. I cut this recipe in half. Because I don't use Miracle Whip, I substituted in Hellman's mayonnaise. Besides a few seasonings (onion powder, garlic powder, fresh ground pepper, little hot sauce), I kept to the recipe. Out of the whole bowl, only one serving remains. My husband ate three helpings. My son did say that this would be perfect if you added in pickles--I think he's right. NOTE: From start to finish, this recipe took me less than a half hour to make.
It was pretty good. I only had 3 pounds of potatos so i put the serving to 7. IT TOOK 2 HOURS to make this but i boiled my own eggs. I followed the recipe to a T except i put paprika in it.
This is exactly what my mother made during the 50's and to the present. Make sure your potatoes are fork tender, I boil them with the skins on and use brand name Miracle whip, regular yellow mustard, and sweet Vidalia - or dry minced onion and plenty of salt and pepper makes this taste good. Best when made the day before you plan to serve it so the flavors really meld together.
I LOVE this recipe. I've been looking high and low for a perfect tater salad recipe and this one is absolutely perfect. My family prefers dill potato salad, my husband prefers sweet salad. I modified this for my husband and added sweet gherkins, 1/4 C sugar and some celery seed. For my family, I added garlic salt and dill pickles. Both batches were devoured. This is an absolutely perfect base recipe.
easy way to get some decent potato salad without cracking any eggs.
I added celery, relish and some minced garlic. Its plain otherwise.
Might want to half this one unless you want a gallon of potato salad.
This is good back lacking something, so I added al little bit of sweet pickle relish and paprika and tasted better. I also put a little chopped celery.
I chose this recipe because it is very similar to the one my mom makes and everyone raves about. She just eyeballs the measurements of everything and I have a hard time with that. The only difference is I didn't use onion and I chopped dill pickles to go in it. I also russett instead of red potatoes. I'll try the red next time. It was so creamy. It was delicious! My hubby said it's the best potato salad he's had. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!
I've made this recipe for years but with my own twist. I add diced onion & celery and mix the Miracle Whip with Ranch Dressing. Everyone loves this and its great for get-togethers!
