Actually I like both but certain things taste better with mayo and others with miracle whip. Mayo is best for sandwiches and baking recipes that call for it. However I find that the acidity of Miracle Whip taste better in salad recipes. If I use mayo when I am making pasta or potato salad I always add a bit of lemon juice, when I use Miracle whip I find I don't have to.
Actually, they are the same. Both start out with a raw egg, 1 cup of oil, salt and pepper and a bit of lemon juice.
Miracle Whip adds sugar and some other seasonings but the core is the same.
Mayo is the base for several things, 2 of which:
1. tarter sauce (add mayo + relish)
2. Thousand Island Dressing (Mayo + Relish + Ketchup)
