"After reading the reviews, I tried this. As I did not have curry or majo on hand, this was omitted as was salt (based on other review that it was too salty). Used miricle whip, It was very good. Next, I added the following as it was on hand and I wanted a diff flavor: chopped orange, yellow peppers and celery. Garlic and onion powder, salt, sweet pickle. Next, I tasted it with a cracker and the dip seemed to salty so I added more Sweet pickle relish to balance it out. AWESOME

This recipe is very flexible and can be easily adjusted based on what you have on hand."

"My mom used to make this for me all the time when I was a little girl. I've recently rediscovered the recipe. Now I'm making it for myself. I used to eat it with white rice, buttered and salted. Absolutely delicious."
