Mum's Miracle Whip Dressing

Sue Fitzpatrick


Mum made this for her potato salad and cabbage salad. I still use it and make it for simple lettuce and tomato salads and macaroni salad.

Typically, Calorie-Wise Miracle Whip gives me a dressing less in fat than most low cal store bought dressings. For my salad, I use 1/4 - 1/2 tsp sugar and no mustard. I tend to like a sweet dressing.
