Potato Salad Recipe by Deliciously Ella

"This is one of my favourite summer salads. It’s a great addition to any lunch, especially a picnic. The potatoes taste amazing tossed with asparagus in the creamy lemon and avocado mix, and then sprinkled with chives and spring onions. It’s simple but delicious! I can’t wait to hear what you all think of it."
