Hello there! Why have traditional potato salad when you can mix in fresh avocado & pico de gallo? This is a mayo free potato salad that you gotta make for the 4th. Or any time at all.

I’m super excited to share with y’all that I’ve partnered up with Avocados from Peru this summer bringing you AMAZING recipes….all featuring….you got it, avocados!

Avocados are a super delish super food ingredient that we love to eat for snacks with salt, lemon juice & pepper.

We also adore them in all kinds of recipes from sweet to savories.  What are avocados From Peru? They are full of flavor because of plenty of sun, limited rainfall, and pure water from the Andes Mountains! It’s a unique combination for monumental flavor.

Not only does this potato salad taste wonderful, but it is filled with beautiful colors.

Try to find the little potatoes with some purple ones. They are gorgeous!! Yellow & red tomatoes also add color kick.

Here’s a bit of Avo Advice: Not sure if your Avocado From Peru is ready to enjoy? Gently squeeze it in the palm of your hand—a ripe avocado will be firm, but will yield to gentle pressure.

Cutting an Avocado From Peru is as easy as C, T, P! Step 1) Cut a ripe Peruvian Avocado lengthwise around the seed. Turn it until you’ve cut around the entire diameter. 2)Twist the avocado halves in your hands and separate them. 3) Pit the avocado by scooping out the seed with a small spoon. Enjoy!
