When the summer heat kicks up this is perfect to serve. Healthier and no mayonnaise to worry about. Lime juice and olive oil are the healthy version to this great Southwest style salad and you won't have to worry about making everything separately!

Even The Kids Love It!


Even the pickiest eaters love this salad.

It's easy to make, easy to find something in the bowl that everyone loves and it's a perfect way to get kids to eat their vegetables.

The potatoes are soft and flavorful, even if there is something in that bowl they're not crazy about, they don't have to scoop it in their plate!

Southwest Salad


This gets it character from the avocado, corn and other delicious South Western flavors.

I love this salad any day of the week but love to bring it to a picnic or outing we are having.

Everyone always loves the potato colors along with all the other vegetables that in it.

It sure is tasty for a cold salad.

A great alternative to a regular potato salad, especially if you love everything in this one.

Pretty To Serve


We really love the delicious flavors that potatoes absorb in this dish.

The vegetables in it are what my family enjoys, you can change it up if you prefer.

Try different beans, like red or white.

Cucumbers sliced, onions and even some chopped plum tomatoes all go great in this salad.

If there is something else you prefer, anything goes great in here.

I try and stay away from the juicier vegetables.

I have also used chopped cauliflower, broccoli and artichoke hearts.

Try whatever combinations you like in this Southwest Style Potato Salad.

I use to make this every 4th of July, now it's such a big hit, I make it all summer long!
