One of my favorite things to do is making up new recipes (and then try them out on my family) and while I don’t get really adventurous I am always amazed at the things I can come up with off the top of my head.  One of my favorite ways to experiment with food is with the grill!    If you’re into cooking and have some killer grill recipes that are just too good to keep to yourself you may want to pay close attention to this post!DOLE California Cook off logo


DOLE is holding its 2011 California Cook-Off recipe contest on their Facebook page!  Check out the details below…you may just win a trip to California!


Submit your great grill creation to the Dole 2011 California Cook-Off recipe contest at and if you’re chosen as one of the 3 finalists, pack your swimsuit and shades and head for an all-expense paid trip to sunny L.A.! As a finalist, you’ll enjoy 3 days/2 nights in Hollywood where you’ll prepare your delectable Dole dish with other finalists at celebrity haven The Grove and meet celebrity Chef Ben Ford.

The contest begins April 10, 2011 at 12 a.m. ET and closes on May 15, 2011. The finalists will be announced June 1, 2011 and the Dole 2011 California Cook-Off event will take place live at The Grove in L.A. on Sunday, June 26.

To participate is easy - you must be 18 years old or older and visit Dole on Facebook at to "like" the page and then enter your recipe under the "Enter to Win" tab for a chance to win. You can even submit a new original recipe once each day for more chances to win.

Submit a delicious, healthy recipe that is prepared on a gas grill (partially or entirely) using at least one Dole product and up to seven additional ingredients (spices/herbs, water, oil/butter/cooking spray don’t count).


So if you have an awesome recipe for a grilled Hawaiian burger, or an equally scrumptious grilled pineapple salsa then fire up the grill, perfect your recipe, and submit it (before May 15th) to enter the DOLE California Cook-Off!  You can get more information, including the official rules for the contest on DOLE’s Facebook page.  HAPPY GRILLING!
