I grew up eating Miracle Whip because we couldn't afford anything else. Sandwiches need something, whether it's mayo, Miracle Whip, oil or meat drippings. Dry sandwiches are like eating sand.
Hot dogs - mustard, ketchup, onions, relish. That's a good dog.
Potato salad - Mustard FTW! Mayo potato salad is gross. Macaroni salad is the work of the devil.
Mayo >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Miracle Whip...i'll almost refuse a sandwich with Whip. my wife likes it better and sometimes will make tuna with it and i have to eat it. i've slowly been converting her to mayo, delicious mayo
you have ruined a perfectly good dog with ketchup...i pretty much have no issue with any other topping on a dog. usually just some mustard and maybe some onion is good enough for me, but sometimes i'll go for kraut or a fancy Chicago dog or one of them other crazy dogs. Michigan also has tons of Coney Dogs...it's a chili dog although somewhat different chili
i still say both mustard and mayo for the potato salad...it's such a beautiful combo. love me some Macaroni salad made with mayo too
now i need to find a way to work some mayo into tonights dinner. maybe i will go for mexican and get their cole slaw for a change (for some reason my favorite mexican place serves rice and cole slaw...you can get beans instead though)

And not just chili, but what about peppers, salsa/pico... the list is endless. Art, I thought you lived in or near enough to big cities to have hotdog carts around. Any hotdog cart you go to is going to have a good dozen toppers. You're telling us you've never had a loaded dog?
Yeah, I was a little hasty with my list. Salsa, peppers, and in some cases, cheese, are acceptable as well.
I agree that a sandwich needs something, it can't just have dry bread, but that something isn't mayo. I've never tried miracle whip, so I can't comment on that, but I'm somewhat of a mustard connoisseur. I've got probably six or eight different mustards in my fridge right now, and there's always a mustard that will compliment any kind of sandwich. Also, for most sandwiches--particularly turkey--mashed up avacado applied to the bread like one would apply mayo is delicious.
