"Many years ago, I ran out of Miracle Whip® while making potato salad and added coleslaw dressing. I wouldn't make it any other way now. This can be eaten the same day, but is best the next day."

Very nice potato salad that went well with grilled bacon wrapped turkey tenderloins. I mixed it up in the morning and we enjoyed it that same evening. It had a nice creamy texture, but we didn...

Loved it! The name is a bit misleading, as there is nothing 'lemony' about this, IMO. We really enjoyed the sweetness from the slaw dressing and miracle whip. This was a great change from the us...

This potato salad was really creamy and really delicious. I would definitely make it again.
