for the salad:

  • 2.5 lbs red skinned potatoes
  • 4 dill pickle spears chopped
  • 3 hard boiled eggs cooled, chopped

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons dill pickle juice
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp dried or fresh dill
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. Cut potatoes into 1" chunks.
  2. Place in a 4 qt saucepan, cover with water and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer potatoes until fork tender but still hold their shape. Drain and let cool.

Press Manual, set timer to 5 minutes. When Instant Pot beeps, let manual release for 5 minutes. Quick release the rest. Carefully remove eggs from Instant Pot onto a bowl filled with cold water. Remove potatoes from Instant Pot. Let cool.
  4. In a large serving bowl, combine potatoes, chopped eggs and chopped pickles.
  5. In a small mixing bowl or a measuring cup, mix together mayo, sour cream, pickle juice, dill and salt and pepper. Pour dressing over potatoes. Toss gently to coat.
  6. Cover and chill in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours.

Recipe Notes

This potato salad is best made ahead of time and chilled in fridge for 1 to 2 hours. Store leftovers covered in the fridge for up to 3 days. If you don't like mayo, use creamy Ranch dressing instead.
