APPETIZER RECIPE: BLT & Guacamole Crostini

What’s better than a BLT?

Well, there’s a turkey BLT and our favorite, the chicken salad BLT.

And then there’s the guacamole BLT. Guacamole can be added to any of the above; or turn the concept into bite-size crostini—BLT appetizers. Microsprouts stand in for the lettuce; or you can substitute arugula, watercress or other flat lettuce.

This recipe was developed by Deborah Branby, chef/owner of The Cheese Board in Reno, Nevada, and provided to us by the California Avocado Commission.

We’re serving it on New Year’s Eve.
