A Delicious twist on plain old Potato Salad – Tender baby potatoes in a creamy Avocado sauce – NO Mayo potato salad !
Avocado Potato Salad is a creamy delicious variation on the usual Mayonnaise potato salad I usually make.
I season the salad very lightly, but do sprinkle over a bit of extra Black Pepper just before serving. This Potato Salad can be served with any main meal.
We have had it (countless times!) with barbecued meat, week day meals, which the main dish varies from fish to chicken and all the rest of it.
The Avocado Potato Salad is equally delicious served warm (not piping hot though) or cold and I try to make it as often as Avocados are in season.
This variation has quickly become more popular with my family than my usual Potato, Egg, Mayo salad, especially during Spring/Summer when we enjoy the salad cold.
You can of course also use plain regular sized potatoes, sliced into smaller cubes. Whenever I can, I use Baby Potatoes – it tastes just a little better than regular potatoes and then there is also no chopping as well !
The Lemon Juice not only gives a bite to the salad, but also helps to keep the Avocado a nice green color ( no black discoloration here! )
