6 Minute Instant Pot Potato Salad

Pin This Recipe!

This 6-minute Instant Pot Potato Salad is so simple to do you will fall in love with this recipe. If you are looking for an easy side to pair with tonight’s pork chops or a potluck side dish for this summer, you just found it. The Instant Pot cooks your potatoes and eggs perfectly; all you do is toss them in and push a button. Homemade potato salad couldn’t get any easier if you ask me. 

We are having an early spring here in central New York. It is 68 degrees out, and I am ready for cookouts already.  It is going to snow on Sunday, so back to winter. I wanted to test out 6 minute Instant Pot Potato Salad. Let me tell you, I can’t wait for summer this was the easiest potato salad I have ever made. Done in just 6 minutes and bursting with flavor. The only thing missing was some of my Lava Cake.  Sunday, when it is cold out again, I will be back to making soups like Panera’s copycat Broccoli and Cheddar.

Here are a few more Instant Pot Pot Luck or Picnic foods you can’t live without:

I create a system when I get the eggs and potatoes cooking, I start prepping the other veggies and make the sauce. Then once the Instant Pot is done, allow it to cool a little and then peel and dice eggs and incorporate it all together. It literally takes minutes to make. This recipe gives you that creamy thick sauce that coats the potatoes really nicely and truly is a breeze to make.

The Instant Pot potato salad is simple to make and perfect in flavor. Make this in the morning before you leave for work, and when you come home at night, you have that perfectly chilled potato salad waiting for you.

Putting the eggs on top of the potatoes will help cook them faster than cooking eggs solely in the Instant Pot. I learned it is a trick, and it pays off in cook time!

Another thing is to be aware of how thick you slice your potatoes. The larger chunks you make, the longer they need to cook. The smaller you cut, the less cook time is required. I cut my potatoes into smaller bite-size pieces and find the time works great. If you struggle, it could be the size of potatoes.
