Healthy Avocado Potato Salad with Fresh Dill

Author Notes: Using avocados in place of mayonnaise not only allows for a healthy alternative, but also enhances the flavor of the other components of the recipe! If there are any leftovers, remove potatoes and use the avocado mixture as a spread for BLT's or other sandwiches.Susan Hicks
