In my mind, August is synonymous with a few food items: tomatoes, sweet corn, and BLTs. Do you agree?

The California BLT is the ultimate summer meal that I thinkkkkkk you’ll want to eat it over and over until summer is over. (I’m sorry for reminding you that summer has to come to an end.)

What is a California BLT?

It’s the perfect mix of classic BLT with a little California flair (aka AVOCADO!!!) and a special dill mayo that just elevates this old and perfect classic.

If California summers had a sandwich, this would be it!

This California BLT hits all of the flavor notes you want out of a meal: salty, crunchy, juicy, creamy, fatty, flavorful, and so, so satisfying. Serve it with some sweet corn for the ultimate summer meal.
