Best Avocado Potato Salad

Have you ever tried avocado in your potato salad? If not, make some avocado potato salad now because it is really tasty! The avocado adds a creamy, nutty, decadent touch to the potato salad which works so well.

This avocado potato salad goes beautifully as a side dish alongside chicken, burgers or any other meat, or try it with fish or something else. Make this once and you are sure to want to make it again and again, and don’t be surprised if everyone asks you for the recipe.

Which Potatoes to Use in Avocado Potato Salad

We are using baby red-skinned potatoes here but you can use brown-skinned ones if you wish, or even larger potatoes cut into cubes. They should be boiled until they are just tender, no more else they will fall apart too easily in the avocado potato salad and that is not what you want.

Use freshly squeezed lemon juice for the tastiest result and if you have some leftover potato avocado salad then squeeze extra lemon juice into it, to help preserve the bright green avocado color and prevent browning. You can keep any leftovers (although there usually aren’t any!) in a covered container in the refrigerator for 2 or 3 days.

The Addition of Avocado

Adding avocado to your potato salad is so clever because it tastes so good, and you will wonder why you never thought of doing this before now. The dill in our avocado potato salad adds an aromatic flavor to the dish while the lemon performs 2 functions – adding a bright acidic note, plus keeping the avocado bright green instead of letting it turn brown.

This easy recipe is great for warm sunny days when you are cooking burgers or sausages on the grill and looking for something unusual to go with it. You can make this in advance of course, and just take it out of the refrigerator when the meat is done and you are ready to serve.
