Feel free to shred your potatoes if you prefer. And if you don't like any crunchy texture in your potato salad, you can chop the celery, pickles, and onion in a food chopper.
If you don't care for miracle whip and are a mayo person, go ahead and substitute it. But in my opinion, it's better with Miracle Whip.
