  1. So Miracle Whip is the secret ingredient in Amish Macaroni salad; we buy this at local deli often, especially goes well with steamed, spiced shrimp. I'll have to try to make it. will add a pt. of Miracle Whip to my grocery list. I'm a Hellman's light mayonaise fan. DH like the regular Hellman's mayo and I use the light version. Too much fat content in regular...doesn't agree with my intestines.
