Pretty Good made some slight modifications...If you like a mayonnaise based potato salad dressing this is spot on! However I've always preferred the miracle whip flavor myself. Initial recipe was good but I made modifications to suite my likes. I accidentally added to much cayenne but really liked the spiceiness! I didn't do the Dijon mustard (not a fan) but substituted with French's instead. Also one it was completed I probably added an additional cup of sugar- like my on a slightly sweeter side than how it initially turned out. All and all great recipie! I never thought about making my own mayo so that new find was fantastic! Family loved the recipe too my hats off to you for providing a tastey potato salad dressing with substantially lower calories compared to what I USED to do! Thank you thank you! Pros: Tasty easy Cons: A little time consuming but that is expected when making this dish! Read More
