Instant Pot Potato Salad Recipe

Instant Pot Potato Salad is going to become your favorite (and only!) way to prepare the dish. It’s perfect for serving at cookouts, picnics, or any dinner. When I make it, I love to set some aside to enjoy warm. The rest of my family prefers it chilled. Either way, it’s delicious!

The Instant Pot Makes This Dish a Breeze!

I fought buying an Instant Pot for months. When we moved to our forever home last year, I was excited to clear out a lot of gadgets that I hadn’t used in ages. When I sat down to work on our schedule for the next couple of months, I finally gave in because of the time it would save us. Thursday and Friday nights will be packed full of football this fall for our boys — and we all need good food to get us through the season!

Cooking potato salad in the Instant Pot seemed a little scary at first. I didn’t want to overcook the potatoes, making them too soft. The eggs need to be perfectly cooked with soft, creamy yolks. The great part — they can be cooked together!
