Toasted baguette slices topped with an Asian fusion of creamy Boursin Cheese, furikake, and crispy radish.
It’s been really hot here lately and after puttering around the yard doing the summer's this and that in the heat, a chilled glass of pinot grigio always seems to hit the spot. And when that second glass gets poured, you kind of want a snack to go with it…other than chips. So the other day when that scene occurred, I went to the fridge to see what I could scrounge up.
There it was…a container of Boursin Cheese that I had with the last of my lox and crackers a few days ago. No worries, I had a baguette that was going to be part of dinner, so I sliced off a few pieces and and grabbed the Boursin. If you’ve never had Boursin Cheese, it’s soft and creamy and spreadable. It was very good on my toast, but since Boursin Cheese pairs well with a lot of things…lox, meats, veggies…I thought I’d try something different.
I went for an Asian flair and sprinkled some furikake on the cheese. Furikake is a popular nori sprinkle that’s most commonly used on top of hot rice. It comes in a variety of flavors, but I used the Nori Komi Furikake which is mainly nori and sesame seeds. And since my Boursin was the Herb and Black Pepper variety, I went for an even more peppery bite and added some radish slices. It was interesting…I liked it.
So I made it again for my taste testers and got thumbs up. And now I’m sharing this Asian fusion snack with you.
- Boursin Cheese Herb and Black Pepper

Slice the baguette and toast them. Spread the Boursin Cheese on the toast. Sprinkle with furikake and top with thinly sliced radishes.
