  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook until tender enough to pierce with a fork, about 15 minutes. Drain and cool slightly. Remove the peels and cut into cubes. Set aside to cool completely.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the onion, salad dressing and mustard. Stir in the hard-cooked eggs and cooled potatoes. Try not to mash the potatoes very much. Season with salt and pepper.

I've made this recipe for years but with my own twist. I add diced onion & celery and mix the Miracle Whip with Ranch Dressing. Everyone loves this and its great for get-togethers!

I chose this recipe because it is very similar to the one my mom makes and everyone raves about. She just eyeballs the measurements of everything and I have a hard time with that. The only diffe...

I really enjoyed this potato salad, such a different flavor. I do love Miracle Whip, only with certain foods, never thought of potatoes though. Only change I made was to add an extra egg, otherw...

This was a pretty good basic potato salad. As is, it's pretty bland...I added garlic powder and onion powder and it still was a bit short on flavor. However, would be easy to remedy. We enjoyed ...
