I never, ever mess with the basic recipe, never.
The only thing I change about it, I will make it with onions or without.
Either way, equally tasty.
Mine never tastes as good as hers, but then again, she's been making it her way for over 60 years, and I figure she's had a little practice.
I made it last week to accompany a ham I cooked. We had friends in for dinner and I didn't want to fuss too much, so it was a simple dinner, but we enjoyed.
10 red potatoes, cooked til done, diced
6 eggs, hard cooked and diced
5 slices Mt. Olive Dill Pickle Sandwich Slices, diced
Set aside to cool to lukewarm.
Opt: 1/2 chopped sweet onion
Opt: Paprika to sprinkle on top
1 cup Miracle Whip
2 tablespoons pickle juice
4 tablespoons milk (plus more if desired)
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
Whisk the Miracle Whip, pickle juice, milk and mustard together, pour over the diced potatoes, eggs and pickles.
Take out and serve and accept the compliments, graciously.
