Pressure Cooker Classic Red Bliss Potato Salad makes a colorful presentation with the red skin from the potatoes and the green dill weed.
Pressure Cooker Classic Red Bliss Potato Salad
Skin on or skin off? Clap on, clap off….. Sorry, I couldn’t help it. I love the color this Classic Red Bliss Potato Salad. It’s so festive and delicious and so easy to make. My family switches off between the Classic Red Bliss Potato Salad and the Summer Picnic Potato Salad, which we make without the skin and with a bit of dill pickle. In less than 20 minutes, you’ll have potato salad chillin’ in the fridge!
I generally figure about two pounds of potatoes to four large eggs It makes it easy to weigh out the potatoes at the grocery store. Cooking the eggs with the potatoes in the Pressure Cooker makes things so much easier.
While the potatoes and eggs are cooking, mix up the sauce. It will taste too salty, but don’t worry, once you add the eggs and potatoes, it will be fine. We like the Hellmann’s/Best Food Olive Oil Mayonnaise or a Light Mayonnaise, but use whatever your family likes.
Once potatoes and eggs are cooked and cooled, add them to a large bowl and add the mayonnaise mixture.
Gently mix everything together and chill for at least one hour. Adjust spices as necessary.
