I have both. I use Mayo for most things. The only time I use Miracle Whip is when making potato salad. I always use Miracle Whip in my potato salad.

I definitely use Mayonnaise! Currently, however, I try not to use it very often because I'm watching my fat & calorie intake. Isn't that fun?! Anyway, the only thing I ever use Miracle Whip for is a salad casserole recipe that I make sometimes. My mom makes it & that is where I got it from. Otherwise, I never ever use Miracle Whip... yuck! I do however have regular & fat-free mayo in my fridge currently. If I do use mayonnaise I use the fat-free of course! My husband uses the regular because he is skinny & never seems to gain any weight... grrr! My 13 year old son however thinks that mayonnaise of any kind is absolutely disgusting & he never ever uses it on anything whatsoever.

Until a few years ago, I preferred mayonaise (Hellman's to be specific). I now prefer Miacle Whip. I love it's tanginess. It provides alot of taste to my tuna salad. I also use it in potato salad and macaroni salad.

I use both for just about everything. Pretty much whatever I make that needs mayo, I'll use some of each. I even put mayo on one side and miracle whip on the other when I'm making a sandwich. I like the sweet taste of miracle whip, but it can be too sweet if that's all you use.

I use both as well. They go great with canned tuna or chicken and make a really good salad topping. Sandwitches taste better with Miracle Whip and Mayo is good with tuna. I just find that Miracle Whip has more of a bite to it in taste.

I actually have never really liked either of them. Miracle Whip is too tangy and strange-textured for me. The only thing I ever used mayo for was cole slaw and tuna salad but I don't make those anymore.

Miracle Whip is in my fridge. I am flexible. Sometimes I get Mayo for a recipe.

I have both, but the mayo is used in recipes when called for and the salad dressing is used by everyone on their sandwiches and stuff like that.
