Tomato & Boursin Cheese Salad

September 13

If you’re looking for ways to use up fresh garden tomatoes, look no further!  I used to love caprese salad with tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cheese, but I tried it with Boursin cheese instead and now I make it all the time!  There is not a right or wrong way to make this salad, so use as much or as little of the ingredients as you like.  Here is a quick guidline:

Tomato & Boursin Cheese Salad

  • fresh garden tomatoes, about 6 cherry or campari tomatoes.
  • boursin cheese, I use about 1/4 of package
  • balsamic glaze

Wash, dry and quarter the small tomatoes.  Crumble the Boursin cheese over the tomatoes and drizzle with the balsamic glaze.  Serves 2.

    I made this with a wide assortment of my fresh garden tomatoes, including different colored heirlooms and it was so beautiful and delicious! Everyone loved the balsamic glaze.

    This recipe sounds fantastic! Is it best to make your own balsamic glaze or can I buy this at the store? Thanks Everyday Gourmet!

      I found a brand that tastes just like the real thing. It’s called “Gia Russa” and Hornbacher’s in Fargo carries it. I have tried another brand available at Super Target and I strongly suggest NOT buying it. If you would like to make your own, simply pour balsamic vinegar into a sauce pan with a heavy bottom and reduce by 3/4 or until it will coat the back of a spoon when hot. You will also notice that the bubbles will seem “thick” when it is simmering. Good luck! 🙂

    This is just simply delicious! Aunt Pat just made this for me while she stayed at our house. I loved it so much, I’m going to make it for lunch again today. Love your blog, Jessica!
