Instructions
  1. Put a mesh strainer in your Instant Pot. Put the pound of noodles in the strainer and add 8 cups of water. Lock on your lid, set your toggle to sealing, and set manual/pressure cook for 4 minutes. When done cooking, do a VERY careful quick pressure release. You might have to do it in little bursts so as to not spray all over the kitchen, but you want the pasta out of the pot fairly quickly. Pull the strainer basket up, let it drain a few seconds, and then run the whole basket of pasta under cold water to stop the cooking. Set aside to cool.
  2. Put all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. When the pasta is cool-ish, add to salad.
  3. Place all the dressing ingredients in a jar and shake them until well blended. Pour over the salad ingredients and toss well. If you are taking this salad to a potluck or picnic, wait to dress the salad when you arrive as the spinach will not hold up well if you carry the salad all dressed.
