Mango & Tomato Turns 2: Recipe Contest/Giveaway

Guess who is turning 2 this May? Mango & Tomato, that's who!

I can't believe I've been sharing my passion for food with all of you for the last two years.

So much has happened in the last two years. I had a chance to meet many amazing food bloggers, visit wonderful restaurants, try new products, make simple and delicious recipes and join Twitter!

Obviously I don't make every single recipe with mangoes or tomatoes, but I still absolutely love them.

Here are some photographs of wonderfully sweet champagne mangoes my friend Cindy brought for me and beautiful red and meaty heirloom tomatoes.






So here is where you come in to help me celebrate! I decided to have a recipe contest. The winner of the contest will win a $25 card to Whole Foods and a $25 card to Sur La Table.


RULES
1. Create an original recipe that includes both mangoes and tomatoes.
2. Post the recipe on your blog with at least one photograph and a link back to this post. {If you don't have a blog, you can still enter. Just skip this step and go to step #3.}
3. Email me the link to your post with your best photograph attached by June 30th. {Sorry, only those in the USA are eligible to win, but anyone can create recipes!}


The runner up will receive 25 Disposable, Biodegradable, Compostable and Sturdy Palm Plates in different shapes and sizes courtesy of MarxFoods. Thank you Justin!!! These are the plates you see in my photos. I received these plates to test and really like them. So far I used them as fruit and vegetable bowls and a place to keep my jewelry. But you can also bring them along for picnics: perfect for the summer. Obviously the runner up of my recipe contest will be receiving brand new plates ;)


Good luck to everyone! I cannot wait to see what you come up with.

Fun fact: the oil in the sap of a mango tree is the same as the oil in poison ivy. If you are allergic to poison ivy, then wash your hands well after handling mangoes. Depending on what your mangoes touched, you can end up with poison-ivy like reactions without stepping into the wilderness. (I learned this the hard way).

I love the color combination of mangoes and tomatoes. I'll add this up to my compilation other than my own canning salsa recipes . Happy cooking!

Those heirloom tomatoes look absolutely wonderful. Look even more adorable with their weird shapes and bumps! :)
