Boursin Pasta Salad with Cherries, Corn and Cucumber

Boursin Pasta Salad with Cherries, Corn and Cucumber

It's pasta salad season!

A couple years ago my husband introduced me to Boursin cheese and it has been a stable of my cheese plates ever since. Boursin is a soft cheese, somewhat similar in texture to cream cheese, flavored with garlic and herbs. I found it in every grocery store in my area so I feel somewhat safe saying it's easy to find. Its creamy texture and outstanding flavor make it the perfect dressing base for pasta salad when combined with some greek yogurt, vinegar and olive oil.

While the cherries are non-traditional for pasta salad, they add a sweet pop of flavor that goes perfectly with the savory garlic and herb dressing. The cucumber adds a refreshing crunch as does the toasted almond slices.

This salad is delicious when enjoyed immediately after making but ideally 30 minutes - 1 hour after preparation. Since the dressing is cheese based as opposed to mayo based, it will not retain its initial creaminess as the cheese goes back to it's cream cheese texture after being refrigerated for a couple hours.
