When I was younger, I wasn’t a huge potato salad fan. Even my Mom’s, and she went the whole route with homemade mayonnaise and everything. But I appreciate it more, now, and I especially appreciate it when its a lot easier than Mom’s. And I appreciate it when it’s this creamy, Classic Potato Salad, Instant Pot or Not.
If you’re old enough, you’ve probably had this salad, Classic Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing, at least if you live in the States. It was everywhere in the late 70’s and early 80’s and was served for decades. And then it disappeared. Fell out of grace.
It seems I’m all about the summer party recipes, lately, not my typical everyday fare! (See the explanation marks? That proves it!) And this Loaded Baked Potato Salad is definitely one. Heck, it’s a party in a bowl.
So over the long weekend, temps way up in the 90’s (oh why is the weather so craaaazy this year?) I somehow got the idea that I wanted some of that Old Fashioned Tuna Macaroni Salad. You know the one I mean, all cool, creamy deliciousness with a few crunchy veggies and that tuna that somehow melds in and makes everything so rich.
When I was at my daughter’s not too long ago, I completely forgot how to boil an egg. And then this week, the same. I swear I’ve lost my memory and can’t find it. But you see, I’ve been making most of my hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot lately and since I hate googling up recipes I’d thought I’d post the Best Basic Hard Boiled Eggs right here. Just in case anyone else needs it, too!
