“I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!” –Longfellow
I LOVE THIS SALAD. I don’t what the magical combination is in this salad but it’s a favorite. I got this recipe from a sweet little lady named Patty, who lived next door to my friends, the Bernhisels, a long time ago. She brought this wonderful potato salad to their annual neighborhood Christmas party every year and I just thought it was the best potato salad I’d ever tasted.
- 12 Idaho potatoes oiled, cooled, peeled and diced
- 12 boiled eggs
- 2 green peppers chopped
- 1 bunch celery chopped fine
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 12 small radishes
Mix with Kraft Miracle Whip (use about 3/4ths of the jar). Salt and pepper to taste.

I first tasted this as a young girl. It’s a delicious salad and it’s very pretty in its presentation. Be sure to mix the salt and pepper and sugar with the dressing ingredients. Some versions of this recipe say to sprinkle it over the lettuce ingredients. No. Mix it with the dressing.
1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped and washed (
2 cups frozen peas
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
3 green onions, sliced (white and green parts)
3-4 ounces of Swiss cheese, sliced and cut into thin stick
2-3 tbsp fresh grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Miracle Whip
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4-1/2 tsp salt (start with 1/4 and add more if needed, some brands of mayo are saltier then others and you do not want to over salt the dressing)
1/4 tsp ground pepper
- Combine all salad ingredients in a large salad bowl
- Make dressing by combining and thoroughly mixing all dressing ingredients
- Pour prepared dressing over salad and make sure you toss it until evenly coated
- Best when served immediately

Here is a yummy little recipe adapted from Cooks Country. This recipe serves 8-10 people.
What you will need:
- 2 cups of whole milk
- 2 cups of mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
- 16 oz package elbow macaroni
- 1/2 cup cider vinegar
- 4 scallions, sliced thin
- 1 large carrot, grated
- 1 celery rib, chopped fine
- Salt and pepper
Whisk together 1 1/2 cups milk, 1 cup mayonnaise, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons pepper. Refrigerate.
Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot. Add pasta and a tablespoon of salt to the water and cook until pasta is soft, about 15 minutes. Drain pasta and return it to the pot.
Add the vinegar to the pasta and toss it until it is all absorbed. Transfer pasta to a bowl and cool it for 10 minutes. This is important because cooling it keeps the vinegar from curdling the dressing.
Stir in the dressing until pasta is well coated. Cool.
Now add your scallions, carrot, celery and the remaining milk and mayonnaise. Stir into pasta until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate pasta, covered, for at least an hour before serving and up to two days at most. Serve and enjoy!
