This past weekend I made Ninja Foodi Pork Ribs and wanted to make an easy side dish to go with them.  One of my favorite side dishes for anything barbecue is potato salad.  Growing up, my family ate a lot of potato salad! 

There’s just something so good about cold, fresh potato salad.  This is my family’s recipe.  It’s a bit different than the pre-made potato salad that you can buy at the grocery store.  The main difference is the addition of sweet pickles.  Every single time we make potato salad, my dad will add extra pickles…..I think that’s our favorite part!  If you’re not a fan of pickles, you can use celery instead.  Both give a great crunch to the dish.

Potato Salad

One of the nice things about making potato salad in the Ninja Foodi is that the diced potatoes keep their shape better than they do in a pot on the stove.  When I cook the diced potatoes on the stove, I stir the potatoes to make sure they don’t burn.  The stirring causes the potatoes to crumble a bit.  In the Ninja Foodi, there is no need to stir so they stay in perfectly cut cubes!

I love this recipe because it allows you to cook the potatoes and the eggs at the same time.  And….the eggs came out PERFECT!  I was a little worried that 4 minutes would not be a long enough cook time but they were cooked perfectly.  The yolks were bright yellow and cooked throughout!

Tips for making Ninja Foodi Potato Salad:

1.Modify this recipe to fit the tastes of your family.  Add as many eggs and pickles as your family likes.  I love them both so I added a lot!

2.When peeling the hard boiled eggs, roll the cooked egg on your counter top.  This will gently break the shell and make it easier to remove.

3.Be sure that the potatoes and eggs are cooled before adding the mayonnaise.  If the mayonnaise is added to hot potatoes and eggs, it will not be as creamy.
