Sweet southern style potato salad
This would go great with your burgers this summer:
• 6 large potatoes
• 2 hard boiled eggs
• 6 strips of fried bacon cut up into small pieces.
Ingredients for Salad Dressing:
• 1 cup of Helllman's mayonnaise
• 1 cup of Miracle Whip
• 1 & 1/2 teaspoons of vinegar
• 1 teaspoon of mustard for coloring - or less
• 2/3 cup of sugar--actually use just a little bit less!
Boil 6 large potatoes until cooked through and then cool and peal skin. Cut into small cubes. Boil eggs and cut into small pieces and then set aside. Cook bacon in pan and then cut into small pieces. Set aside.
The salad dressing is the key to making this recipe taste good. Combine equal amounts of Hellman's mayonnaise and Miracle Whip salad dressing. Then add mustard mostly for a light off-white coloring. Add the vinegar. Add sugar, but use a little less than 2/3rds of a cup. Taste salad dressing and if it is too sweet, add just a little more vinegar. If it is too tart, add a little more sugar. This dressing requires a lot of sugar and the right taste is sweet and a little tart at the same time. Add the bacon bits and chopped hard boiled eggs to the salad dressing. Pour the dressing into the potatoes and mix well.
