Replace mayonnaise with avocado for a healthier creamy potato salad full of avocado nutrients and healthy fats.

I love avocado and I recently had avocado potato salad for the first time (in Japan of all places). I really enjoyed it and knew I had to make it when I came home.

I like that it gives the whole salad a light green color. Avocado is so creamy too that I didn’t miss the mayonnaise at all.
