How to make Instant Pot herbed red potato salad

Print this recipe
Potato salad is so ubiquitous at potlucks and backyard barbecues that it can almost seem boring. This version, loaded with flavorful chopped fresh herbs, is anything but. Serve it alongside burgers, ribs, or steaks and watch it disappear fast.
The combination of herbs used here—parsley, dill, and chives—is lovely, bright, and fresh, but it is endlessly variable. Try other herbs like basil, mint, oregano, chervil, or tarragon. The key is to use quite a bit of them to give the salad a real punch of flavor.
