Creamy Avocado Potato Salad
Rating (0 Rated)

The secret to the creaminess is a food processor. Prepare this as close to serving time as possible. It can sit for a couple of hours, but more than that and the avocado will brown.  
serves 6


2 pounds fingerling or baby Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
1 tablespoon cilantro
1 clove of garlic, peeled
2 ripe avocados
2 tablespoons lime juice (1-2 limes)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cayenne pepper (optional)
1 plum tomato, chopped
1/2 small red onion, diced small
1/2 English cucumber (or regular cucumber), diced very small

1. Cover with cold water and cook the potatoes for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and set aside.
2. To prepare the dressing, place the garlic clove and cilantro in the food processor and process for about 10 seconds, until chopped. Add flesh of avocados to food processor.
3. Add the lime juice and salt and purée until smooth, scraping down the sides with a spatula as needed. Once smooth and creamy, add the tomato and onion. Pulse three or four times, until they are incorporated but not completely blended.
4. Put the potatoes and cucumbers in a large mixing bowl. Add the avocado mixture and mix well, being sure not to mash the potatoes. Taste and add more salt and lime juice to taste. Sprinkle a little extra cayenne pepper on top, if you like.
