"SO-some people don't really want to review the recipe-they just want to tell us what they like or don't like. SORRY, don't really care if you like Miracle Whip or pickles. I have a 6yr old who acts the same way."

"Sorry, the Miracle Whip in potato salad or anything for that matter, ruins it. If I could give less than one star, I would. I see that I am not the only one that feels this way."

"This is a very good potato salad based on a dill pickle dressing. I had no problem with the dressing separating even after three days."

Reviewed Jun. 9, 2014

"I would actually rate this 3.5. The first day it was deliciious. However, after a day or two the pickle juice (vinegar) caused separation and the dressing became a little "loose". Would make it again but would omit the pickle juice."
