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!

Delicious Balsamic Onions

Hi friends! The hubs has a crazy six day work schedule, and for us, Sunday is our day to run errands, rest, recharge, and recuperate! In short, it’s our favorite day, because it’s the most quality time we get to spend together. Another activity we enjoy is cooking and eating together! Actually, he does most of the cooking, but who’s counting? One of our go-to meals on Sunday evenings is what we call our “big salad”…it’s basically everything but the kitchen sink thrown onto a plate…tons of greens and veggies and everything good and healthy. One of our recent discoveries is Balsamic Onions. They’re the perfectly sweet and healthy touch to an otherwise boring salad.
