the better question is, "Does anyone even use miracle whip?"

@carl669: Yes we do "use it" but not as salad dressing.

My mom used to - mixed something with it and I can't remember what it was. It wasn't bad, but I'd much rather use my Ranch, etc.

No way, that stuff's nasty.

Yes, but only as part of making Russian dressing. Not alone.

I don't particularly care for Miracle Whip, but I prefer it to mayonnaise. The only thing I can think of that I use it for is tuna fish sandwiches. Other than that, if it disappeared from the face of the earth I'm sure I wouldn't notice or care.

I use it as a base for my taco salad dressing.

Miracle Whip
Ketchup
Milk (small amount)
Dill Relish
Mexican Chili powder
1 packet TruLime crystallized lime juice

If you've never heard of TruLime, I think it's amazing. It's way cheaper than keeping real lemon or lime juice on hand or even the from-concentrate bottles of it. Of all places, I buy it at a local farm supply store chain:

That's funny, I used up a large jar of it last night making egg salad sandwiches for a baby shower at work today. Southern style with bread and butter pickles on white, Deli style with Hungarian peppers and black olives on rye, and Southwestern style with avocado and pico de gallo on wheat. Miracle Whip is a staple in my house, I never make a sandwich without it. I'll only eat mayo if there's no other bread-moistener available.

@omnichad: True Lime, True Lemon and True Orange are the best! But if you want a cheaper alternative, try straight food grade citric acid. Costs $2.75 an ounce or $12lb at Myspicesage.com, as opposed to $4.99 for less than an ounce of True Lime. Same basic flavor, without the rind that differentiates lime from lemon.

Usually for egg, pasta, or potato salad, not for lettuce salad. It was on all our sandwiches when I was a kid. I didn't know it was not mayonnaise until college. We called it mayo -- still do.

Actually, now I use a mix of Miracle Whip and mayo for most salads and for deviled eggs and the like. Mayo I find too tangy, and Miracle Whip is too sweet. They should make a half-and-half.

YEP, WE USE IT FOR SANDWICHES. Well, the kids & my wife do. I like butter on my sandwiches.

On the rare occasions that I eat salad it is dry. As far as Miracle Whip goes, I have never used it for anything.

Not for a salad dressing, but definitely for egg salad, tuna salad, deviled eggs and on sandwiches. For some reason I use mayonnaise for my potato salad.
