Reviews for BLTs with Raisin-Avocado Spread
"The avocado spread is surprisingly and subtly sweet due to the cream cheese and raisins. I used store-bought tomatoes, but ripened them in a brown paper bag with an apple to bring out their full flavor and juiciness. A huge hit at home!"
"The avocado raisin spread is perfect! Great flavor. The sweetness of the raisins is unexpectedly perfect."
