Amish Macaroni Salad Dressing----

What gives it that taste that is not like plain mac salad dressing. To me, it just has that yummy flavor. I have looked at it online but still cant figure it out. I got some at Walmart, a while back, and it was yummy. Got some plain y-day and no comparison in flavor. In the ing lists of both, the common ing. is Miracle Whip, which I haven't used since 2003 when I started the locarb way of eating. Any thoughts on this? appreciate.

Miracle Whip tastes so different from regular mayonnaise, I'm sure that's the difference. And yes, it contains more sugar than regular mayo.

Linda Sue has a great copycat recipe for LC Miracle Whip. I make it for the hubs all the time, and he loves him some Miracle Whip. This passes muster with him, and as an added bonus, it's very simple to make.

It would be worth a shot to see if it will work to give you the taste you're trying to approximate, helper.

Helper-- I saw a recipe for the Amish Mac Salad Dressing which had Miracle Whip and sugar in along with other safer ingredients. You could make your own with
Splenda, etc. But what do you use this for?

I hate to sound dense, but how can you eat macaroni on a LC way of life?

happy to yas---

Carolyn, I was just wondering what gave it the "Amish" taste. That's all. Thanks.


Luv2loose-- There are no dumb questions---I have been on the LC way of life since 2003. Lost 30 lbs. and have maintained that, + or - 5 over the years. Learned to read net. lists. and how to use PORTION CONTROL. Very important. Stick with it. It gets automatic, after a while. Thanks for asking.

I think it is the sugar.

But there are low carb pastas that you could use and change up the sugar
