    Guava Girl's Note:

    A unique version of a potato salad without any mayo. Good for cookouts and potlucks. I think the friend who gave this to me said it came from Paula Deen.

      This is not a Paula Deen recipe, but the same one is posted on the Food Network as being one of Emeril Lagasse's. I agree, it's really a refreshing change from a mayo based one, or even one with a vinaigrette, it's much lighter tasting. I use a lot more cilantro than is called for, as there is a lot of leeway in it for suiting your own taste: more acidity, more cumin, more or less chile, onion and garlic, etc. It's a great way to include the healthful fat of avocado in your diet! A few cherry tomatoes are a great addition, as well.

      I thought this was a great recipe and was different than the usual mayo potato salad. Thanks Guava Girl!
