It is no secret that I’m a huge fan of Boursin® cheese.


I buy it all the time. I’ve also used it in recipes, but I definitely prefer enjoying its wonderful flavor and creamy texture over some good quality crackers.


My desire today is to show you how to prepare your own holiday appetizer platter.


Yes, I know this isn’t really a recipe and everyone could throw in some fruit, crackers, nuts and cheese and call it a platter. I’d like to give you some ideas and share my love for Boursin® cheese.


On my recent trip to Walmart, I got some Boursin® Shallot & Chive cheese from the cheese section. There is also another awesome flavor (my second favorite) – Garlic And Fine Herb. You can also find it in these flavors :

  • Boursin® Red Chili Pepper
  • Boursin® Cranberry & Spice
  • Boursin® Basic & Chive
  • Boursin® Cracked Black Pepper
  • Boursin® Cranberry & Apple

My intentions were to use it for the holidays, but I also made a Saturday night appetizer platter last Saturday, just to practice before the holidays and show you my idea.


Boursin® is a creamy, crumbly cheese that your guests will definitely enjoy.

Boursin® is really made to wow.

Boursin® Shallot & Chive Cheese is perfect for a holiday platter. This is just the way I love my holiday platters. And I enjoy making these!


No matter if we host a party at home, of go to a party with family or friends, I would always make a platter like this.

By choosing a nice plate/platter/board, you can easily add all of your ingredients and wrap to cover them, so it is ready for your party. And it will look beautiful!

I made some homemade marinated mushrooms, loaded with flavors and always look good on a holiday platter.

I also used some nuts (pistachios), high end mini crackers, pomegranate, tangerines and grapes. Feel free to add more components to the platter, if you’d like.

The use of Boursin® Shallot And Chive is a must!

  1. I never think to buy Boursin to eat like this, Mira. In the past I’ve bought it mostly for using in sauces or for stuffing chicken.

    Great idea to make up a yummy platter like this!

  2. Boursin cheese is one of my favorites, too! And I love cheese platters, so this sounds perfect. I love this tutorial and the ingredients that you served to go along with it. What a great idea for the holidays, Mira! Sounds perfect!

  3. I’ve never tried Boursin and I’m wondering why???  The flavors sound delicious, and I love all the ingredients you’ve paired it with.  I wouldn’t stray far from the appetizer table with this around!

  4. Yum!  I love Boursin and actually just bought this kind last week!  The garlic and herb is my go-to but the chive and shallot was delicious, too.  Great job with the holiday platter – looks beautiful.
