Girls Night Out: Tomato and Avocado with Boursin Appetizer

48426

My friend, Kiel, just recently moved to Jacksonville, Florida, and she sent me some recipes from her “Girls Night Out” dinner. She and 10 of her friends get together every Tuesday night and alternate at their different houses trying new, fun and creative recipes. One night, they made Panini sandwiches and homemade tomato soup. Recently, they had an abundance of healthy, fresh salads. She sent me some of the recipes from her latest dinner. This Tomato-Avocado Appetizer with Boursin is such a breeze and tastes delish! It is so perfect for a crowd, especially during the summertime (such as this weekend for July 4th) celebrations. Thanks Kiel and your wonderful friends for sharing your recipes with me.

  1. Now that is my kind of appetizer….not fried, breaded or filled with stuff that will get me too full for dinner. I would put a few of those tomatoes on top of a salad with some bite sized pieces of chicken or fish & have a field day! That girl’s night looks like a blast. xo

  2. How fun! I can’t wait to try it. I know anythign Keil comes up with and you approve, must be amazing! 🙂

  3. Cute pics and recipe sounds good! I agree with Kassady-anything Kiel comes up with is bound to be good! Allison, I am actually about to make the corn-edamame salad.
