"This salad is one of my husband's favorites," writes Diane Wilson of Charlotte, North Carolina. "Just fill the pressure cooker, put the lid on, cook for a short time and a wonderful potato salad is done."


  • 6 bacon strips, diced
  • 7 unpeeled medium red potatoes, cubed
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, divided
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a pressure cooker, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp; drain. Add potatoes and onions. In a bowl, combine the vinegar, water, sugar, 2 tablespoons of parsley, salt, mustard and pepper; pour over potatoes.
  2. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on medium for 5 minutes. Allow pressure to release naturally. Just before serving, sprinkle with remaining parsley.
