Avocado Potato Salad ... Delicious and Healthy Twist on A Classic | View From The Fridge

Last Friday I introduced our new Wednesday series here on View From The Fridge (and, no … that wasn’t a typo … I was just two days late for my post last week).  Each month, we’ll pick one healthy food and each Wednesday of that month, we’ll share a recipe idea using that ingredient.

This month, it’s the AVOCADO …

Great Recipe Ideas with this amazing fruit ... the Avocado! Healthy and delicious ... we'll show you how!

You can read all about the health benefits of the avocado in last week’s post, but in summary, it’s good for your brain, it’s heart healthy, good for your eyes, stabilizes your blood sugar, can ease arthritis symptoms, lowers cholesterol, can help you loose weight, and … can even help prevent and fight certain cancers.

Sounds good, right?!?  Here’s this week’s recipe:  Avocado Potato Salad

A fabulous twist on the classic summer side dish to up the nutrition factor (and it’s delicious, too)!

Here’s how:

INGREDIENTS:

This is for serving a bigger group of people … around 8-10, so half the amounts below if serving a smaller crowd:

  • 3 lbs of new potatoes
  • 8 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
  • 2 large ripe, but firm avocados
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 2 red peppers, chopped
  • 2 red onions, diced
  • 2 large dill pickles, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of yellow mustard
  • 4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • Fresh dill weed, chopped (~2 tablespoons)
  • 1 cup of Avocado Mayo (you could just use regular mayo here, but this Avocado Mayo is absolutely awesome!).

STEP 1:  Quarter and boil the potatoes for ~10-15 minutes or until tender.

STEP 2:  Make the dressing by combining mayo, mustard, vinegar, and dill:

      right? I do love potato salad, but adding Avocados (and using avocado mayo) makes me love it even more because I know it’s healthy!

    I love avocado in anything! Great idea to use it for potato salad, I might have to make this next weekend for a bbq I’m going to.

    Visiting from Turn it up Tuesdays, I LOVE avocado’s, I may be visiting regularly as these recipes look delicious. Anything that can be rolled in sea weed or rice paper is a great idea in my book. I also never thought of putting avocado in potato salad, I will now! Thanks for the tips!
