    Wow! Very good. What a unique way to eat a kiwi! I just had to try this as I had one kiwi left and all the other ingredients on hand. I just eyeballed every thing and didn't bother to let the ingredients "develop" for a day. Who can wait that long? I could only wait long enough to lightly toast my bread.....  -  26 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I REALLY enjoyed this sandwich! I made it on a whim, so I didn't have time to let the cream cheese mixture refrigerate overnight, but it sure was tasty. I just eye-balled everything to taste, and used dried lemon peel and whipped cream cheese for easier mixing/spreading. I served this on lightly toasted Italian-style sliced bread. This was also a big hit with my little guy. I will definately be making this again! Thanks for sharing.  -  23 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My kids thought this was great. They've been on this whole kiwi kick for almost two weeks now, so this was a great way to use up more. I didn't chop the kiwi fruit, I just sliced it like I would for a tomato sandwich. I also didn't have time to refrigerate the spread. This was a great way to use up ingredients I always have on hand and clear out the fridge before grocery day. Thanks.  -  23 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
