  • 3 pounds red potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons, plus 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled (pit removed)
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime zest
  • juice of 2 limes (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

    4. Drain potatoes in a colander and allow to cool.
    5. In a food processor, puree the avocado, lime zest and juice, garlic, cilantro, mayonnaise, and remaining salt, until smooth.
    (If the dressing seems too thick, add a tablespoon or so of hot water)
    6. Cut the potatoes into bite-size chunks (leaving the skin on); place them in a large bowl with the celery.
    7. Scrape in the avocado mixture with a rubber spatula and gently stir it all together.
    8. Serve immediately, or cover and chill.
