Ingredients

Avocado Ranch Dressing

  • 1 ½ medium Avocados from Mexico about ¾ cup avocado flesh
  • ¼ cup vegan mayo
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • freshly cracked pepper

Potato Salad

  • 1 ½ pounds baby potatoes, quartered
  • ¼ cup chopped almonds or pumpkin seeds
  • 2 green onions green tops only, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives minced
  • 2 tablespoons capers or diced dill pickles
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill chopped (optional)

Instructions

  • Boil the potatoes in a large pot of boiling, salted water, until fork tender but still a bit firm, about 12-15 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse well with cold water. Set aside to cool a few minutes.
  • Blend the avocado, mayo, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, water, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and plenty of pepper in a wide mouthed jar with an immersion blender. 
  • Taste it - it should taste a bit saltier and tangier than you think it should as the potato soaks up the flavour. If not, add a pinch more salt. 
  • In a large salad bowl, combine the potatoes, almonds, green onions, chives, capers and dill and toss with half the avocado ranch dressing to start, adding more if desired. I like my potato salad saucy, so I use it all!
