Healthy Avocado Potato Salad – Vegan

No mayo, healthy and vegan avocado potato salad recipe with lemon avocado dressing, fresh dill, scallions and chives. Add a handful of green peas to boost the protein content but also because they go really well together.
One of the best potato salads you’ll ever make!
A simple concept of slicing and boiling potatoes and while those cool off you mash some perfectly ripe avocados with lost of freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice, a bunch of fragrant dill and sweet spring onions. Season with sea salt and mix in some green peas to make a meal of things.
I’m really fond of fresh dill especially in potato dishes, some people find it a little overpowering and If that’s the case then cut down on the amount or replace it entirely with fresh cilantro /coriander or watercress, even chopped up dandelion greens and arugula would make a nice addition.
This salad reminds me of my favorite creamy potato salad from my childhood (minus the mayo of course) that also features cooked carrots and always served with tiny pickles or cornichons. I hope you’ll give it a go because it’s too good to be missed. Also these Pesto Potatoes. They both travel well in a cooler, so bring them to your next garden potluck party!

Healthy Avocado Potato Salad Recipe
- 2 lb Yukon Gold Potatoes
- 3 avocados
- 2-3 scallions - chopped
- 1 chili pepper -chopped
- 1 lemon or lime - juiced
- 1 cup frozen green peas (thawed out in warm water)
- 1/4 cup chives - chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh dill (roughly choppep)
- 1 pinch sea salt + more to taste
- 1 pinch red pepper flakes -for garnish
- 1 lime -sliced for serving
- Rinse and slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch slices. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Season generously with sea salt at this point, the water should taste like sea water. Cook for about 10 minutes until tender but not mushy. Drain the potatoes in a colander and allow them to dry very well in their own steam then allow to cool.
- Meanwhile slice the avocados and scoop out the flesh. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and mash together with the lemon or lime juice. Mix in the scallion and chili pepper and season to taste with sea salt.
- Add the potatoes to the bowl with the avocado together with the green peas and dill. Use a spatula and fold them together with care as not to break them.
- Taste and adjust seasonings again with more lemon juice and sea salt. Garnish with the chives and serve at room temperature or chill for later use.
This salad was incredibly creamy and flavorful, will make it every chance I get. Thank you, loving all your vegan recipes!
Your description mentions dill but I don’t see it in the recipe. How much do you put in?
thank you for this, I am allergic to eggs, so mayonnaise and salad dressings are not my friends. this looks amazing, I can’t wait to try this.
Your description mentions dill but it’s not in the recipe. How much fresh dill do you add?
You’ll need about 1/4 cup fresh dill Cathy, recipe is showing all ingredients now 🙂
Looks great! My husband can’t have avocados, do you think I could replace the avocado with 1/4 cup white beans? do you think that would work or do you have another substitution?
Frances, i’m sorry but I’m not sure beans would work here. This recipe is so much about the avocados. I would try making a bean pesto using white beans and chives instead, maybe some mustard. Let me know If you give it a try before I do 🙂
Great alternative to my mother-in-law’s delicious potato salad that is full of mayo and eggs. I overcooked the potatoes accidentally and still loved it. We used an Anaheim chili pepper and it does not add too much heat, which is good. Will be making this again and looking forward to going through your recipes for more vegan ideas. Thank you.
That’s awesome! Hope you’ll find many more recipes to love here ~ Florentina
