This is a good potato salad recipe for us folks who don't like onions. I really wanted to try a potato salad recipe, and they ALL had onion of some sort. By not putting any, I'd lose half the taste. Well, this may seem a silly recipe to some of you, but I love it and so does my brother!

Yay, no onions! Glad there are more out there like me who hate potato salad most of the time because of the little onion surprises in it. I do agree with those who prefer mayo and add hard boiled eggs and a shot of prepared mustard to the mixture. Read More

I make a very similar type of potato salad. To add a little more flavor I add bacon bits to mine. I despise onions so I know I miss out on a lot of flavors in various recipes. But this is a wonderful variation. I brought it to a dinner once and the part people complianed about was the Miracle Whip(I personally love the stuff). there were no complaints about lack of onions.:) Read More

I grew uo on this. My grandmother added hard boiled eggs bacon and celery. Also she used 1/2 helmans and 1/2 miracle whip. On the top paprika sprinkled on it adds a nice flavor. Read More

Potatoes and mayonniase alone make for a fast inexpensive meal....Although you might want to spend the extra buck and add some flavor and nutritional value to it. Read More

I make this same recipe but I add 2 or 3 chopped hard-boiled eggs to mine. You can use half Miracle Whip/half mayo if you are serving to non-Miracle Whip enthusiasts (like myself). Yum! Read More
