Replacing the traditional mayo with mashed avo makes for a beautifully creamy potato salad.


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • ¼ cup plain yoghurt
  • 2 T wholegrain mustard
  • 2 T fresh lemon or lime juice
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 800 g baby potatoes, cooked until tender and halved
  • ½ red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 t garlic, minced
  • 2 pork rashers, fried and chopped (optional)
  • 2 T fresh herbs (parsley, dill, etc.), finely chopped

Cooking Instructions

1. Mash the avocado well in a large bowl using a fork. Add the yoghurt, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix well.

2. Add the cooled potatoes, tossing gently to coat well. Finally add the red onion, garlic, bacon and herbs. Serve warm or cold.

    Super delicious and easy to make, will definitely make this recipe again. I substituted the yogurt for coconut yoghurt to make it dairy free.
