Pesto BLTs

 Pesto BLTs
“I first tasted this delicious combination in a local bistro,” recalls Robyn Larabee. She's been making the hefty sandwiches ever since at home in Lucknow, Onatario. It's a tasty way to use up those last, languishing garden tomatoes! TIP: Robyn says her BLTs are especially good served on rustic, homemade whole wheat-and-honey bread.
