Just in time for National Salad Month this May, StarKist® is unveiling its first ever “Charlie’s Salad Stars” Facebook contest, offering consumers a chance to win a trip to Los Angeles and have lunch with bestselling author and TV personality Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien. Beginning May 21st and continuing through June 18th, StarKist® is calling on all tuna lovers to join them on Facebook and submit a photo of their most original salad creation along with their favorite StarKist® Tuna Pouch for a chance to win.

“StarKist is always encouraging consumers to build their own recipes and discover new ways to enjoy tuna,” said Mike Brookhart, Director of Marketing at StarKist. “This contest offers current and new fans of StarKist the opportunity to enjoy the versatility, convenience and taste of our range of tuna pouches. ‘Charlie’s Salad Stars’ contest is a chance to give fans a fun opportunity to be imaginative with their meals and share their creativity with our entire community.”

To enter for a chance to win, participants must simply:

  • “Like” the StarKist Facebook page at
  • Create a salad using their favorite StarKist® Tuna Pouch
  • Snap a photo of the salad along with the pouch used
  • Complete the entry form and upload photo via the “Enter Now” tab on the “Charlie’s® Salad Stars Contest” tab on our Facebook page

Submissions will be featured in a “Charlie’s Salad Stars Showcase,” and since StarKist always loves hearing about new tuna dishes, fans are free to come back each day and upload a different salad for more chances to win. Consumers are also encouraged to show off their salad star submissions via social media, using the hashtag #SaladStars.
