How To Make Instant Pot Heirloom Potato Salad

Add 1 cup of water to the Instant Pot inner pot.

Place potatoes and eggs in a steamer basket or on top of trivet inside the Instant Pot, making sure they stay out of the water. Then close the lid and turn the valve to sealing position.

Set to a manual high pressure time of 5 minutes. When the cooking time has finished, perform a natural pressure release.

Next, remove the eggs and potatoes from the Instant Pot. Put eggs in a bowl with cold water and ice to stop the cooking process and then remove the shells. Refrigerate eggs and potatoes until cool.

Chop up the eggs and pickles, and then add to a bowl along with the potatoes.
