If you love potato salad, then I think you will really enjoy this recipe. It’s as simple as cooking the potatoes in the Instant Pot, chopping them up, and then stirring in the rest of the ingredients. 

How to Make Egg-Free Instant Pot Potato Salad

Step One

The first step to making your salad is to cook the potatoes. I think the easiest way to do this is in an Instant Pot pressure cooker. I also like to peel my potatoes, but that is an optional step. 

And, if you don’t have a pressure cooker, you can easily cook your potatoes on the stovetop. Just boil the whole potatoes for about 20 minutes, or until they are fork-tender.

You can use Russet potatoes, white potatoes, gold potatoes, or red potatoes for potato salad.

Step Two

After the potatoes are cooked, it’s time to chop them up and assemble the salad. Be sure to cut your potatoes into bite-sized pieces, about 1-inch in size.

Step Three

Then, all you have to do is add your remaining ingredients and stir them up.

One of the most important ingredients is the mayonnaise you add to the salad. You can either make it from scratch, or choose a quality brand of mayo. If you are vegan or egg-free, then be sure to check the label to make sure there are no eggs in the brand you choose.
