Roasted Potato Salad with Avocado Lime Dressing

Roasted Potato Salad with Avocado Lime Dressing. A delicious twist on a classic summer salad. It's the potato salad "friend" of cilantro lime rice!

Servings 6 -8 servings


  • 2 pounds small roasting potatoes I used fingerlings
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • juice from half a lime
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 green onions white and green parts, chopped
  • 1/2 avocado chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • For the dressing:
  • 3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 Tablespoons sour cream I used light
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped green onion
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/2 avocado chopped
  • cilantro lime and avocado for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Wash and dry potatoes. Cut potatoes in half then toss them with the tablespoon of olive oil until they are completely coated.
  3. Place on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes. Flip/stir potatoes and roast for another 15-20 minutes or until tender and golden brown. Cooking time will vary depend on the size of your potatoes.
  4. Remove from oven and immediately squeeze the juice of half a lime over the potatoes. Set aside while you make the dressing.
  5. For the dressing, blend all ingredients from mayonnaise through the 1/2 avocado in a blender or small food processor until smooth. You will have the other half of the avocado to use for the salad. Squeeze some lime juice on it to prevent browning.
  6. Place potatoes in a large bowl and add celery, green onions, the chopped avocado and cilantro. Stir gently to combine.
  7. Add the dressing and stir until all potatoes are nicely coated. Taste and add salt and/or pepper if needed.
  8. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Garnish with additional chopped avocado, cilantro and lime, if desired.

Recipe Notes

*I like to serve this with a wedge of lime to squeeze on top because for me, there almost can't be too much lime with this salad. Love it!

*If you prefer not to roast the potatoes, simply boil them instead, cooking until tender. Drain and proceed with recipe.
