Save yourself time and one less pot to wash by cooking your potatoes and eggs together and in the Instant Pot for this potato salad recipe. I heard about this hack and decided to try it out myself. Not only were the potatoes and eggs cooked perfectly, but the shells slipped right off of the eggs, making this a breeze to put together. Feel free to change up the ingredients to suit your go-to potato salad recipe but I highly recommend using this method to cook your potatoes and eggs.
