Wisconsin Cheese Curd Potato Salad

Rated as 4.17 out of 5 Stars

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Let the potatoes cool enough to handle, and peel; allow the potatoes to cool thoroughly. Cut into bite-size pieces.
  2. In a bowl, combine the potatoes, onion, cheese curds, mayonnaise, yellow mustard, and seasoned salt; mix thoroughly. Top the potato salad with hard-boiled egg slices and sprinkle with black pepper. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.


  • Cook's Note
  • Make sure the potatoes are completely cooled before adding the cheese. Crumbled fried bacon or bacon bits would be good in this recipe. Substitute creamy salad dressing (such as Miracle Whip®) for mayonnaise, if desired; Also, try 1/2 cup mayo and 3/4 cup ranch dressing, instead of all mayo. Green onion could be added as a garnish as well.

This was good. I used small cubes of shredded Sharp cheddar and left the skins on the potatoes. I also chopped the egg up and mixed it in.

I don't have the luxury of having access to authentic Wisconsin cheese curds (oh how I wish I did) so I cut some cheddar into small cubes. I cut the recipe in half and used one large Russet pot...
