  • cup mayonnaise

  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 celery stalk, diced

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  1. Pour water in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Place steamer; add potatoes and eggs. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions and set timer for 4 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  2. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  4. Combine chopped egg whites, potatoes, and celery; pour in dressing and stir until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with chives. Refrigerate before serving.
