Appetizer idea: Three ways to serve Boursin cheese

Boursin cheese was first introduced in 1957 in Normandy, France, by expert cheese maker Francois Boursin. Inspired by a traditional dish, fromage frais (fresh cheese), in which guests created their own seasoned cheese from a bowl of fine herbs, he introduced Boursin Garlic & Fine Herbs, which quickly became popular throughout France and around the world.Today, Boursin remains a favorite addition to any appetizer tray.

Here are three ways to enjoy this gourmet spreadable cheese:

Stuffed cucumbers
For a fresh, savory appetizer: Halve a cucumber lengthwise, scrape out the seeds with a spoon and fill with Boursin. Cut into ½” sections and top each one with a sundried tomato.

Stuffed peppers
Put Boursin in a plastic baggie. Snip off one of the bottom corners of the baggie and squeeze the cheese into peppadew peppers from our deli. Easy, spicy and delicious!

Spinach salmon rolls
Spread Boursin on large, fresh spinach leaves. Lay a piece of smoked salmon on top of each leaf. Roll up, cut in half and serve.

Serve your Boursin appetizer with a white Bordeaux. Look for Boursin Garlic & Fine Herbs in our deli.
