Something a little different but so tasty. I halved the recipe but next time will make a full batch. Was well-received at our barbecue.

SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!! I had to go out and get the Miracle whip even though I had mayo. Made it and it was all gone in a couple of days! And its only my husband and I. I did decrease the sugar a little just because I don't like slaw that sweet but this will definitely be made over and over again!

This was a great recipe. The only change was substituting mayonnaise for the Miracle Whip. Everyone loved it. No leftovers.

We don't like water chestnuts, but wanted that crunch factor, so we added a chopped up apple instead. Try it!

This is such a different take on either a coleslaw or a macaroni salad. The best of both worlds! I didn't change a thing, and I really like the Miracle Whip dressing.

I made this salad for a birthday party this last weekend, and it was very good. It is pretty to look at and makes a big salad. Great to take to a potluck or family reunion.

This was excellent, a nice mix of pasta and coleslaw with a tangy dressing. I used regular mayonnaise, rather than Miracle Whip. My family and guests loved it! I'll be making this salad again!

Is that 1&1/2 cups or just 1/2 cup of Miracle Whip Light(1-1/2 cups Miracle Whip Light))

I made this for a baby shower and everybody raved about how good it was. I added fresh dill (lots), intimation crab, 1/2 of the onion and red onion instead of yellow and I used Mayonnaise.
