  • Arugula or other salad greens make great additions to this Instant Pot beets salad.
  • For a heartier salad, add in cheese and nuts. Blue cheese and walnuts pair nicely with beets.
  • The fresh dill adds amazing flavor, but you can switch things up and tailor the herbs to suit your taste.
  • You can use different colored beets, such as golden beets, to make this salad a little different.
  • Cook time does not include time for the Instant Pot to come up to pressure or for the pressure to release.
Chef’s Tip: Beet juice stains really easily, so you may want to wear gloves and an apron when working with them.
