The basis for this type of potato salad IS awesome, but of course, I don't think there are any sort of "rules" as to how much of what to add and WHAT to add. My grandma has been making potato salad with Miracle Whip for as long as I can remember (I am now 37). When I asked her for the recipe, it involved the above mentioned things along with eggs and I believe onion. She could never give me the quantities of what she puts in it because, like many recipes, you can add and take away what you want and don't want. It is trial and error! We add the salad dressing slowly rather than dump it all in at once..that way you get a feel as to what you are getting. There are many recipes that have this basic thing with mustard, vinegar, etc....we don't add that stuff, but do the boiled eggs and some onion (but not enough to where you are going to go "ACK! There is ONION in there!"...it is subtle. Add some salt and pepper and whatever to taste and VOILA. But, once you have potato salad with Miracle Whip over mayo, it is hard to turn back!!! Just customize it to your own liking..that is the key! As written, I probably wouldn't like this recipe and would give it barely any stars, but add the egg, onion, and some salt and pepper, and VOILA. GOLDEN. Puts store-boughten potato salad to shame!!
