Edamame Avocado Potato Salad

The long weekend is officially HERE and I could not be more excited for it. Long weekends mean barbeques, hotdogs, and POTATO SALAD. But this is NOT your traditional potato salad, there is no mayo or boiled eggs to be found. Instead, we've got crunchy edamame, creamy avocado and baby potatoes with fresh herbs and a whole lot of flavour in my recipe for Edamame Avocado Potato Salad.



Growing up, potato salad was a BBQ staple. We'd load it with miracle whip or mayonnaise, boiled eggs, celery and potatoes. Nothing more, and nothing less. And honestly? I hated it. It was only recently I realized that potato salad is actually pretty damn tasty, as long as you steer clear of mayo (am I the only person who hates mayo here?!).

This Edamame Avocado Potato Salad is full of all the good stuff - from protein packed edamame, baby potatoes, and creamy avocados, this potato salad is best made ahead. The secret to potato salad is to toss the hot potatoes with the dressing and let it marinate. It helps get as much flavor as possible from your humble potatoes.
