I have a little story to tell you about this potato salad from last night. Every day at five or six my husband calls me and we figure out what we’re having for dinner (that should give you some idea of how much I don’t meal plan). When he asked me yesterday I let him know that I’d made two batches of potato salad for an Instant Pot blog post, so whatever we had it would have potato salad on the side.
I ended up making a HelloFresh meal for dinner, and by the time I got it on the table I’d totally forgotten about the potato salad. We finished dinner and as I was putting away the leftovers, I saw it in the fridge and yelled “Oh no! I forgot to put out the potato salad!”
We’d just finished dinner. We were FULL. And yet, without saying another word three of us grabbed forks and stood in the kitchen in a circle holding the bowl in the middle, snarfing down potato salad. It’s that good.This is the easiest, tastiest potato salad you will ever make. Click To Tweet
Not only is it incredibly tasty, it’s quick to put together (if you don’t count the cooling off period in the fridge). The only prep you have to do before cooking is peeling and cutting the potatoes. The rest can be done during the 17 minutes or so that the potatoes and eggs are cooking.
If you’re an Instant Pot beginner, you should know that this is my third post in my series of super easy Instant Pot recipes for people who bought an Instant Pot and then didn’t know what to do. The first post was about making mashed potatoes, and in that post I go over the different parts of your Instant Pot and the basics of what you need to know. In the second post I show you how to make the best hard boiled eggs ever. And for this post, we’re basically putting both of those things together!
In the recipe below I’ve given you the ingredients for a small batch – enough for four people when eaten as a side dish. You can easily double the recipe and have enough to bring to a picnic, but as with most Instant Pot recipes, do not change the timing or double the cooking water! Both of those stay the same.
And be warned: this stuff is addictive. Combine that with how quick and easy it is to make, and you could be in trouble. I know I am.
