Dole Launches 5th Annual Recipe Contest for a Grand Prize of $25,000!

You will never see me enter a recipe contest as I am not a cook at all! But you know how I love contests and I can’t help sharing this one with you.

Starting now until May 15th, Dole is accepting grilling recipes at You will be judged on your best use of DOLE products, creativity, flavor and taste. You can submit an appetizer, small plate, tapas, taster, or just a healthier portion sized dish that can be prepared in 60 minutes or less on a gas grill using at least one DOLE product and no more than seven additional ingredients. Be sure to check out all official contest rules!

Three finalists will be selected from around the nation and flown to sunny Southern California in late June, where they will don official Cook-Off aprons and prepare their delectable Dole dish in front of envious onlookers and a panel of judges led by a renowned celebrity chef, Ben Ford of Ford’s Filling Station in Culver City, CA

One talented griller will take home a whopping $25,000 in addition to 4 days/3 nights in celebrity-centric L.A!

Do you got what it takes?
