It is by far the best potato salad dressing I have ever used. It is tangy and sweet and just takes a few minutes to cook and it is well worth it.



This makes a large recipe. If you want to use all the dressing at once, boil 5 pounds of potatoes. Otherwise, use just 1/2 and refrigerate the rest. It will keep for about 6 weeks refrigerated. Beat the 3 eggs. Add sugar and vinegar and stir thoroughly. Cook over medium heat till thick. Let cool and then add 2 cups of Miracle Whip.

NOTE You can use any potato but I prefer the red for potato salad. I used 6 hard cooked eggs, 1 small pepper, 8 green onions, 8 radishes. However, you can add or subtract any ingredients for potato salad. It is a matter of personal preference.

This is a great, old-fashioned potato salad dressing.


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • pinch salt
  • a little mustard


Cook until thick, thin with cream until smooth but not thick or too thin. Just until good consistency for potato salad.

Servings: 4-6
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: varies - watch closely
