Instant Pot Bacon & Rosemary Potato Salad

Instant Pot Bacon & Rosemary Potato Salad

This delicious potato salad has been a family staple of ours for years. It was introduced to us by my brother in law John, who is a fabulous cook. The recipe was passed down from his grandmother, and I’d like to give him (and his grandmother) full credit, and a huge word of thanks for sharing it with me so many years ago. I love family recipes that have history behind them, don’t you? I’ve always made this potato salad the traditional way, boiling the potatoes in one pan, and cooking the other ingredients in another – basically making a huge mess in my kitchen. But this year, as Independence Day approached I started mulling over the idea of preparing the salad in my Instant Pot, and just decided to go for it! It turned out so good, and was so super easy to prepare, I thought I’d share the recipe with you.

And it’s ALWAYS a nice surprise to come home after a long day at work to find that box of happy waiting on my front porch!
