Instant Pot Corn on the cob

Grilling season is my favorite in our house; we try to cook out as much as possible when it’s warm out. Cabbage and Bacon on the grill and my Corn Ribs on the grill are some of my favorite side dishes on the grill.

Often, we do the side dishes inside; that’s where the instant pot comes in handy. My Instant Pot Suddenly Salad, Potato Salad. and Cucumber and tomato salad are my go-to side dishes in the summer.
