This Instant Pot Mediterranean Potato Salad is loaded with good flavors like olives, capers, feta, red onions, olive oil and lots of herbs!
You know summer is pretty darn close when you start to crave cold foods in all shape and form. This happens because your body is seeking to balance it's internal temperature with cold foods (and drinks!)
Does this make sense? I know that for the most part we tend to just ride the waves of our ever-changing cravings but there is a reason behind it all.
So while we may associate the perfect summer meal with a juicy Grilled Steak, Burger or a tasty kabobs Skewer, the cold potato salad offers the perfect balance to a summer meal.
Besides this Instant Pot Mediterranean Potato Salad some of the other options for a cold side dish are; this Classic Pasta Salad or this Pesto Pasta Salad. I also LOVE making fruit salads like this Watermelon Feta Salad , Tropical Summer Salad and this Cantaloupe Peach Salad because they are fun, can double as dessert, they are kid-friendly and super hydrating!!
