I blame the appearance of healthy egg salad in my fridge on Instant Pot eggs. I just had to satisfy my curiosity and one fine spring break morning I promised kids the eggs they can crack and eat with a spoon. Well, I had 2 curious kids and 0 soft-boiled eggs. By following 3 different recipes from Pinterest, all my Instant Pot eggs came out semi or hard boiled.

And what a girl to do with 12 cooked eggs? Exactly, an egg salad.

My Ukrainian taste buds that were raised on deviled eggs with canned smoked sprats (fish) and a lot of egg potato salad (Oliver salad) every celebration, love simple egg salad.

Life is that simple! Enjoy!
