No-Mayo Potato Salad (Vegan)

by | Updated: June 29th, 2017

Is there anything you can’t do with an avocado? You can make guacamole and dip veggies into it, add it to a smoothie, spread it on toast and use it to make dense, fudgy desserts. Here, mashed avocado replaces mayonnaise as the creamy ingredient in this vegan potato salad. Avocado acts as the perfect substitute – it’s loaded with healthy fats and won’t weigh you down the way mayo might. Bring this dish along to share at your next picnic, cookout or block party.
