Summer is coming and it’s time to think about picnics and party food!~ Today I am sharing a quick and easy potato salad in the pressure cooker.

I have the fondest memories of my Grandmother’s potato salad. My Mom makes a delicious one too. I decided to give it a go myself in the Instant Pot. Today I am sharing a quick and easy potato salad in the pressure cooker.

You can use either red potatoes or white. Whatever to your liking.

You can make some deviled eggs while you’re at it.

Quick and easy Potato salad in the Pressure Cooker

Pressure Cooker Potato Salad

Servings 6


  • 6 Whole Potatoes White or Red
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1-2 Stalks Celery
  • 1 TBSP Dill
  • 1/4 Cup Red Onion Diced
  • 1/2 Cup Mayonaise
  • 1 tsp Yellow Mustard
  • 1 tsp Cider Vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper To Taste


  • NOTES: You can peel and cut your potatoes first before steaming. I have found whole potatoes turn out better imo. Just remove skins after potato has cooled.
  • Place potatoes in pressure cooker with water. If you have a steamer basket great, if not, you can simply add potatoes to the bottom sitting on top of water. Cook on high pressure 3 minutes. If potatoes are larger, cook for 4 minutes. (You may place your eggs on top of the potatoes for an easy all in one done time). If you choose not to, just make them before hand according to the method that works best for you.
  • Let steam release for 3 minutes. Then quickly release pressure and open cooker.
  • Peel and dice potatoes when they are cool enough to handle.
  • Next, layer potatoes, onion, and celery in a large bowl. Season each layer with salt and pepper.
  • Add chopped egg and chopped pickle in between and reserve a few eggs for the top sliced.
  • Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard,cider vinegar, and dill pickle in a small bowl. Gently fold the mayonnaise mixture into the potatoes.
  • Chill at least one hour before serving.
