Cheesy Avocado Potato Salad

http://dinnerofherbsblog.wordpress.com/2013/09/13/cheesy-avocado-potato-salad-packed-lunch-edition/cheesy avo potato salad
This recipe is from a blogger that I follow. This is the perfect lunch! You have a bit of carbs, good oil from the avo, some tangy cheese and some flavorful cilantro!

Ingredients

2 cups potato, diced

1/2 avocado

1 1/2 tsp lime juice

garlic powder

cilantro

salt

Romano cheese, shredded

Servings: 2-3 servings

Place the diced potatoes in a small pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and boil until the potatoes are fork-tender. Drain the potatoes. In another bowl, mash the avocado and stir in the lime juice, garlic, cilantro, and salt. Stir the potatoes into the avocado mixture. Top with romano cheese and serve immediately. Or pack for lunch for the next day. Enjoy!

Life is good, eat well
