2lbs. small red potatoes, cleaned

2 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, peeled, seeded and mashed

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 green onions, whites only, finely chopped

1 large serrano pepper, seeded and minced

 ½ tsp. salt, or to taste


1. Place potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with water and microwave on high for 10 minutes. Test for doneness by piercing one potato with a fork. The fork should slide in with gentle resistance. Continue cooking if not done, otherwise carefully drain the potatoes and refrigerate them until cold.

 2. Cut potatoes in bite-sized pieces (quarter or dice depending on size of potato). Place in a large bowl.

 3. Stir in remaining ingredients, adjust salt to taste and serve immediately.

Serving Suggestion: If made in advance, sprinkle generously with lemon juice and place a layer of plastic wrap right on the surface of the Guacamole Potato Salad and refrigerate. Before serving taste the salad and add additional mashed California Avocado if needed.
