What Dishes Do You Make With Potato Salad?

Growing up in New Zealand we had plenty of BBQ’s in the Summer months. Potato salad was a staple side dish whenever we had BBQ meat and even went well as a Christmas Dinner as Christmas was on a hot Summer’s Day.

Potato Salad goes well with sticky ribs, bbq chicken legs, steak, turkey green beans and asparagus. It also pairs well with other salads, such as a caprese salad, chicken mango salad or Thai salad.

Place the eggs in the instant pot on top of potatoes and close the lid. Make sure the pressure value is set to close.

Set the instant pot to pressure cook for zero minutes on high pressure. The potatoes and eggs will cook while the pressure is building and don’t need extra cooking time once the pot has come to pressure.

Chop the onion to the desired size. 

Once the instant pot is done cooking, safely release the pressure by opening the pressure value using a towel or hot pad.
