I love potato salad. I think it's probably one of my favorite side dishes at a barbeque. However, I don't love making it, since it can usually be quite the process to cook everything and mix it together.
That's why I love this Instant Pot Potato Salad recipe. It's so easy to make, and the potatoes and eggs can be cooked together in almost no time flat.
No problem if you don't have a steamer basket for your Instant Pot. You can use a mesh trivet or the pot in pot method to avoid the burn message.
Dice the potatoes and sprinkle the diced potatoes with salt.
To the liner, add the manufacturer’s recommended water amount for bringing the electric pressure cooker to pressure, typically 1 to 1 ½ cups. Place a steamer basket into the electric pressure cooker liner.
Add the diced potatoes to the steamer basket. Place the eggs on top of the potatoes. If you do not have a steamer basket, use a mesh trivet or the pot in pot method to avoid the burn message.
Seal the pressure cooker lid and set the valve to sealing. Program the pressure cooker on “manual” or “pressure cook” for ZERO minutes. After the pressurizing cycle is complete, switch the valve to venting for a quick pressure release.
Remove the eggs and place in a bowl of ice water.
Place the potatoes in a colander or large bowl and sprinkle seasonings over the top. Pour the dill relish over the top. Allow the potatoes to cool for 10 minutes.
Peel the eggs and dice them. Add the eggs and remaining ingredients to the potatoes and stir gently to mix.
Best served cold after the flavors have mingled in the refrigerator but can be served warm.
