I prefer Miracle Whip to Mayo can this be substituted? I just don't like the taste of Hellman's... greasy and bland to me.

Please stop the invisible pop up music. It scares the bejeebers out of me and is just plain irritating. I love your site and recipes but not this pop up. You can't even turn it off.

Delicious and lends itself well to whatever else you wish to add. One important footnote-use only Hellman's or Best Food mayo-no low fat, lite, or yogurt! Use only the very best mayo for the best results!

Add diced SPAM and you have a complete summer time lunch. This is how my mom made it 25-30 years ago. I've always loved it!
