Creamy Avocado & Asparagus Potato Salad

It’s the week of potato salad! I made a more traditional mustardy potato salad for Mother’s Day, but I saw this recipe in the Oh She Glows cookbook and it looked like it would be worth having potato salad twice this week for dinner. I was correct! It was a really filling yet light dinner and I loved that it had such a creamy fresh taste and tasted like spring! It’s delicious and tasted good warm or cold. Because of the avocado, it’s best right away, but I had leftover for lunch today and the top had turned a little brown but still tasted great. I served it with a side salad with tomatoes, carrots, cucumber and a drizzle of the raspberry balsamic dressing I made earlier in the week. They tasted so much different that it was fine having potatoes twice this week.

Did you know potatoes have been proven to be the most satiating food? They fill you up and make you feel satisfied while still having relatively low calories and they’re very nutrient dense. If you need more potatoes in your life, try this recipe this season!

I changed my ratios a little bit, and I took out the oil but it’s relatively the same recipe from my Oh She Glows cookbook.
