Guacamole Potato Salad

Have I ever mentioned that I hate mayonnaise. HATE IT. But weirdly enough I love potato salad, so I have been trying to find a way to rid the world of potato salad loaded with mayo. That, and I was getting tired of having the same old potatoes, so I decided to use what I had in the fridge to make a new rendition on potato salad. Avocado, Greek yogurt, lime, garlic, onion and green chilies combine to make a potato salad that is unlike anything you have ever tasted. And guess what, it is super healthy! So toss that mayo out the window ( not literally), and give this a try for the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend.

Boil the potatoes:

 

Add ingredients to food processor:

Mix in the greek yogurt:

Slice the potatoes into quarters:

Mix the potatoes with the sauce:

3. Once cool, slice potatoes into quarters. Place in a large bowl. Stir in sauce, until it covers evenly.Cover bowl with plastic wrap ( so that the plastic wrap is flush with salad, and then lid, to reduce oxidation and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
