Summer just isn’t summer without getting together with friends, enjoying great food and making memories.
AVOCADO POTATO SALAD
This is one potato salad you won’t want to miss.
So what are you waiting for? Invite your friends over, fire up the grill and serve this delicious avocado potato salad. It’s perfect with burgers, hot dogs, chicken, and pork. Ok, it’s great with sausage sandwiches, too. They always seem to be such a great hit at BBQs. Add some corn on the cob and watermelon and dessert and…. maybe… dig out a Frisbee or some horseshoes. They are a hit when friends come over, some will play and some will watch and chat… the chatting will make memories summers are made of.
This avocado potato salad is made with red potatoes, red onion, avocado, lime, cilantro and a couple spices.
I boil the potatoes the night before I’m serving the potato salad. It saves time the day of the get-together, and they are easier to slice cold and don’t get all broken up when mixing.
No need to get the mayo out for this recipe. Avocados are creamy and delicious and they work great in this no-mayo potato salad. If you love mayo, go ahead and add some to the recipe.
If you’re asked to bring something to a get-together, this avocado potato salad is perfect. And a great way to transport this potato salad is to place it in small 4 oz. glass jars. You can pack them in a cooler with ice. Perfect for the beach, a friend’s house and picnics. The small jars make a great grab and go side dish when the hot food comes off the grill or alongside sandwiches.
