Egg Salad Sandwiches

Instant Pot Egg Salad is a unique twist that cuts down on prep time and simplifies lunch. Boiling eggs on the stovetop to make egg salad often turns lunch into a lengthy process that requires planning in advance. But thanks to your Instant Pot, you can procrastinate up until lunch and still eat on time.

I argue that this is the best egg salad recipe because it’s not only simple and easy, but it’s delicious as well. With sweet, savory, crunchy and soft textures and flavors all combined into one filling, this egg salad brings it all to the table (and your plate).

While the eggs may not look pretty and might taste a little more watery, they’re still perfectly safe to consume.

Homemade egg salad if kept in a sealed container in the fridge can last about 3-5 days. For best results, you’ll want to eat it sooner rather than later and make sure to mix the salad before eating to help reincorporate any loose liquid that separated.
