Sweet and Savory Potato Salad

Shhhhh..... this is my version of a family recipe. You know, the kind that is supposed to be a secret..... or not. I asked, she shared! So I don't think this is too secret, right?
This is a different way to make potato salad from what I'm used to, but the family loves the original so I tried it, with a couple of twists.  Start this the day before so that the potatoes and eggs have time to chill nicely.

Sweet and Savory Potato Salad

6 medium potatoes
1 almost large sweet potato or yam
3 eggs
1 cup Miracle Whip
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
1 t. sugar
1 T. yellow mustard
1 T. creamy horseradish
2-3 T. sweet pickle juice
2 green onions, minced, tops and all
1/3 c. minced sweet pickle chips

In a large pot boil over medium low heat all the potatoes and eggs. Drain, cool in cold water, drain again and chill over night.  Peel and dice potatoes into small cubes. Peel and mince the eggs. In a large bowl combine the potatoes, onion, sweet pickle, and eggs. In a small bowl combine the mayo and Miracle Whip, sugar, mustard, horseradish, pickle juice. Stir into potato mixture and mix until well combined. Add salt as needed. Chill and enjoy! We are all sitting around with stuffed tummies full of honey baked ham, potato salad, steamed broccoli, and sliced cucumbers..... soooooo good!
