Avocado Potato Salad

It’s really just a bowl of ample carbs, and that’s heaven in my book.

But why not take it further and turn that classic into something better?

Because if you’re as obsessed with avocado as I am, you’re in good hands here.

do not wait. Better hands because now, there’s no mayonnaise, no sugar, nothing.

Just garlic-roasted potatoes (yes, roasting is a top secret method here!) and avocados.

Plus. bacon. You cannot forget it.

Hey, if we’re trading mayonnaise, bacon becomes equal trade.

A couple of weeks ago, we set our clocks forward for long, sunny evenings – daylight saving time! Then last weekend we bid farewell Sunday to the least favorite season of the year and say hello to – spring!

Then this weekend, it’s still getting better, because we’re going to celebrate my favorite holiday of the year with its promise of hope, goodness, and all things new.

However, I think Easter has snuck up on all of us early this year. So for anyone else who might be in the same boat as me, and looking for some fresh new recipes to go with Easter ham, I have a delicious recipe for you today that I think you’ll love.

It’s everything we all love about traditional potato salad, but refreshed with some light Greek yogurt in place of mayonnaise, an extra handful of fresh greens and herbs, and—you guessed it—lots of avocado.
