Boursin Salad

September 11, 2010

Boursin is a brand of flavored French soft cheese–have you tried it? If not, give it a try–it’s delicious! It’s hugely popular over here and I love that they add it to salads. Here’s my favorite combo for using Boursin in a salad. This recipe makes one big salad.

3 cups fresh mixed lettuce leaves, rinsed and dried
1 fresh green onion, chopped
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup walnuts, toasted
2 Tablespoons Garlic and Fine Herbs Boursin cheese, crumbled
Balsamic vinaigrette, to taste


  • Place lettuce on a plate.
  • Top with green onion, cranberries, walnuts, and Boursin cheese.
  • Add dressing to taste.
  • Enjoy right away!

    If it’s what I’m thinking of then… I’VE TRIED IT! :) But never in a zillion years would I have thought to put it on salad. My creativity ends at sticking it on a cracker.

    Does it come in a plastic container? Garlic flavored? It’s pretty soft, how do you get it to not stick to you and everything? Maybe there is another version of Boursin too? I’m thinking back to a time I tried to add goat cheese to a salad and it was way too soft and was a bit of a fiasco. :) Stuck to everything including the salad bowl and nobody got any on their own plates.

      I never saw the salad idea until moving here. And it’s so popular, that the fast food place “Quick” even serves Boursin on their salad! I included a link to the Boursin website for ya. It’s sold in a special foil wrapper and it’s more crumbly than goat cheese. I was able to use my fingers to crumble some on the salad pretty easily. Give it a try!!!!
