Game Time or Anytime, Avocados are a Tailgate Crowd Pleaser (NAPSA) - No matter the reason for a tailgate party-be it a football game, auto race, concert or other stadium event-the key to any great celebration in the parking lot or on the field is the food.

Hass Avocado and Red Potato Salad
The menu for a tailgate party can be as simple as sandwiches and chips or as fancy as a four-course meal. Either way, one simple ingredient that adds delicious flavor to a variety of tailgating dishes is the avocado.

Hass avocados make the ordinary fare extraordinary when included in sandwiches, burgers, wraps, hot dogs and salads-as well as serving as the essential ingredient for guacamole and other dips.

With the addition of creamy Hass avocados, this recipe offers a tantalizing twist on a traditional dish. It's a great make-ahead recipe for your next tailgate party because the flavors blend as it chills in the fridge.

Prep time: 15 minutes


  • 2 lbs. red potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 5 tsp. cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp. Dijon-style mustard
  • 3/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 2 large, ripe Hass avocados, halved, pitted, peeled and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces


Place potatoes in a medium pan and cover with water. Bring water to a boil and cook potatoes for about 15 minutes or until just tender when pierced with a fork.

Drain well and pour into bowl.

Combine mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper.

Add dressing and green onions to potatoes and gently toss. Stir in avocados.

Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight to allow flavors to blend.
