Instant Pot Potato Salad


instant pot. potato salad

One of the endless ways our instant pots can serve us! A one-stop pot for a delicious potato salad in just three minutes. Yes, please. Potato salad is such a comfort food, it reminds me of family gatherings, cookouts, or just a plain old cozy, home-cooked meal. It is an excellent side dish that is filling and actually very nutritious if you pick the right ingredients. This recipe uses avocado oil-based mayonnaise which I believe adds the right amount of balance between sour and sweet. Avocado oil mayo replaces inflammatory oils like canola, soybean, and sunflower oils. I highly recommend adding it to your kitchen cabinet, you may just find out you like it better! But, if you just want to use your instant pot to make a scrumptious potato salad, use the ingredients you have and follow along. This is an inviting side dish for all!
