I am always trying new salads. What inspired this salad was my trip to the grocery and finding gourney cheese with garlic and herbs (Boursin) on sale. I took that as a challenge to come up with a salad that would incorporate this cheese. Since it is a creamy cheese, I thought about a salad dressing. I also had asparagus, zucchini and Peppedew peppers in my refrigerator. I think the term ‘necessity is the mother of invention’ applies to this recipe. The results were outstanding – a new rice salad to add to my salad list.
