Salad Dressing (Miracle Whip)

Miracle Whip is a salad dressing and sandwich spread, invented in Salem, Illinois at Max Crosset's Cafe. It was originally called Max Crossett's X-tra Fine Salad Dressing. Crosset sold it to Kraft Foods in 1931 for three hundred dollars. Kraft still manufactures it today. It is advertised as having the taste of mayonnaise with half the fat.

According to the Kraft Foods web site, Miracle Whip debuted at the Chicago World's Fair in 1933, during the height of the Great Depression. Not only was it tasty, but it was inexpensive, making it very appealing to consumers.

The Kraft Foods site also explains that "the Miracle Whip" was inventor Charles Chapman's informal name for his patented "emulsifying machine" that was originally used to blend the ingredients in the mayonnaise-like product.
