This recipe was on here recently - sorry I can't remember who posted it. It doesn't have avocado in it but I'd imagine you could put it in.

Kumara Salad
2 large Kumara
3 spring onions chopped
¼ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sour cream
½ teaspoon curry powder
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

Cook Kumara in boiling salted water until just tender, then drain and leave to cool. Cut into 2.5cm cubes.
Combine kumara and spring onions in a serving bowl.
In another bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, curry powder and salt to taste. Pour over kumara and toss to coat. Garnish with walnuts.
I haven't tried it yet but have it 'earmarked' for over the summer!
