"I too, have the original recipe. This is the only potato salad I have used for years. I do not use the radishes though and up the egg amount. The dressing is the greatest! Love, love, love this recipe! I see the updated recipe specifically calls for Miracle Whip, while the original gives the option of mayo or Miracle Whip. Does anyone know why the change?"

"I've been making this recipe for potato salad for years. I have a print copy of the original recipe. The original recipe calls for 1 cup of mayonnaise or salad dressing. I did a double-take when looking at this online and seeing 1 cup of Miracle Whip. I had to check to make sure this was the correct recipe. I have never bought Miracle Whip. Ever. This blatant product placement is annoying. And isn't how the original recipe was written. I use Hellman's mayonnaise and always achieve excellent results."

"I've never been able to find a sauce as good as this. I've received rave reviews every time I make it. Everyone always asks me where to get the recipe."

"I found this recipe years ago in an old Taste of Home magazine and will probably never make a different one. The only thing I changed is that I prefer Hellman's mayonnaise instead of Miracle Whip. In the prep of the potatoes I peel and cube BEFORE cooking because I hate handling hot potatoes. I just cover the potatoes in water, bring to a boil and then boil for about 7 or 8 minutes. You need to watch so they don't get too mushy. My whole family loves this potato salad!"
