You know what I’m looking forward the most in this time around Easter? … Noooo it’s not the smoked ham… nor the luscious carrot cakes, delightful cookies nor the other sweets. It’s the young potatoes, spring onions, and radishes that tickle my taste buds the most. Since these amazing veggies first appear on the market, they are constantly on our family menu. Especially young potatoes. I’m preparing it in many ways, but maybe our favorite is oven baked potatoes with parmesan and of course potato salad.

Potato salad with onions, known as Kartoffelsalat, is the most popular salad in Croatia. Everybody here knows about this salad, and it’s commonly eaten on Fridays, with the fish. My grandma makes THE best Kartoffelsalat, and she serves it, you probably guess, on Fridays with the fish.

As much as I try, I can’t attain the perfection of grandmother’s potato salad. That’s why I decided to move away from this traditions and offer my family, and you guys, somehow different potato salad. And here it is… a super simple, very nutritious but very light, creamy HEALTHY Avocado Potato Salad. Made without mayo off course.

Creamy no-mayo Avocado Potato Salad with Spring Onions and Radishes

I put literally every single favorite spring veggie in this Avocado Potato Salad – young potatoes, wonderful crispy fresh radishes and flavorful spring onions. Young potato is less starchy and more nutritious than the regular potato. It’s very sweet and irresistibly soft textured. It goes perfectly with sweet corn. I don’t usually peel young potato skin, but for this salad, I peeled away the skin so it wouldn’t be separated while mixing the salad.

I enriched this salad with avocado that is LOADED with monounsaturated fatty acids – heart healthy fats. Avocado is also rich in high-quality dietary fibers, as well as with numerous essential vitamins and minerals – vitamin K, B6, potassium and vitamin C. Because of creamy texture and fullness of flavor. Avocado is a healthy addition to any meal. My favorite use of avocado would be healthy avo dips and salad dressings.

This Avocado Potato Salad is also special because it doesn’t contain any added oils (fats). The salad is seasoned only with avocado in which I added a bit of lime juice and simple spices. Avocado gave a wonderfully creamy texture, while lime brought a beautiful spring freshness into this salad.
