Summer Fresh Potato Salad

Our beloved potato salad. Summertime picnics and backyard cookouts are not complete without this family favorite. As with any salad, this one is only as good and healthy as the ingredients used to create it. That is why we start with the creamy and dense organic red potato and layer in the crisp green celery, onions, fresh dill and mix it all up with tangy lemon juice and a Paleo mayonnaise made with avocado oil and cage free eggs. Sadly, America’s favorite mayonnaise brands contain inflammatory oils such as soybean or canola oil in addition to modified food starch and even sugar.  Primal Kitchen mayonnaise is available at your local market or on Amazon. You can also get adventurous and make your own! Although fresh dill can be tough to find, I encourage you to seek it out! The fresh flavor of dill really makes this dish pop with flavor.
