Carpinteria, California (PRWEB) April 10, 2015
Hollandia Produce, L.P., the nation’s largest provider of hydroponically greenhouse grown living butter lettuce and other leafy greens, today announced the launch of its A Better Butter Lettuce! Recipe Contest, a national retail and consumer-based campaign aimed at helping consumers and retailers better understand the versatility of living butter lettuce as a staple recipe ingredient.
Whether learning of the contest through social media, advertising or in-store merchandising, consumers can access original butter lettuce recipes and submit their own online at http://www.lettucerecipecontest.com for a chance to win the $1,000 Williams-Sonoma gift card grand prize.
Contestants can compete in one of three categories: Salads/Sides, Appetizers, or Main Course. A First- Second- and Third- Place from each category will receive a $150, $75 and $50 gift card respectively.
To help promote the contest, Hollandia Produce has begun shipping its Live Gourmet® Living Butter Lettuce with a recipe label attached to each clamshell. Six original, chef-created butter lettuce recipes will rotate for the duration of the contest and will show how living butter lettuce can be served as a salad, wedge salad, Caesar salad, and wrap, and on a sandwich or in a smoothie.
A Better Butter Lettuce Recipe contest is open to all eligible participants and expires on July 31, 2015. For official contest rules, please visit http://www.lettucerecipecontest.com/.
