One of my goals this summer, is to get my recipes onto 6x6 sheets. This is the first of hopefully many I'll be getting done. At family bbq's and potlucks, there is always a fabulous pasta salad. Now, I typically don't like most potato salads, pasta salads, and that kind of thing just because of the "sauce." So, when I discovered that this pasta salad tasted good to me I knew I wanted the recipe. I found it was my mil's recipe, I asked her for it, and she said, "Oh, you add a dash of this and a little of that." Well, my sil said she had the recipe, so I wrote it down exactly as she had it. At a family party a few months down the road, some of the girls were talking about how good the salad was, and my mil said, "It is good. The key is that you NEVER make it with mayonnaise, you always use Miracle Whip!" I about fell off my chair laughing. I've always made it with mayonnaise and it tastes great to me. The last time I went to make this we didn't have any mayo, so I used Miracle Whip. I was not too fond of the taste, but my husband loved it! So, I guess the story is, use whatever white goo you like, and I hope you enjoy.
