A Month of Organic, Delicious, Affordable Meals
May provides a number of excellent opportunities to celebrate the joys of cooking with friends and family. May is both Salad Month and Salsa Month, so of course we have recipes to celebrate these food occasions – along with Mother’s Day and Memorial Day. And don’t forget about Cinco de Mayo. We have all the help you need to throw a simple, yet “muy delicioso” Cinco de Mayo fiesta!
May 1st – May Day
May Day heralds spring, welcoming the reawaking of nature. Celebrate with our Strawberry Trifle. This scrumptious dessert is delightfully sweet and aromatic, the perfect thing to awaken the senses.
May 5th – Cinco de Mayo
Happy Cinco de Mayo – the day commemorating the Mexican army's surprising victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. If you gather and enjoy food and drink today, try our Mango Salsa for a delicious variation on traditional salsa.
May 7th – Herb Week
It’s Herb Week! We suggest trying a new Simply Organic product, Herbs de Provence. This aromatic blend contains Mediterranean herbs like basil and rosemary and has many delicious uses – including this great Herbed Salad Dressing.
May 12th – Mother’s Day
Happy Mother’s Day! If you're surprising Mom with a fabulous breakfast, add our Italian Egg Bake to the menu. It takes only 10 minutes to prep – which will leave you more time to spend letting mom know how much you appreciate her!
May 15th – Chocolate Chip Day
Hooray, it’s Chocolate Chip Day! We triple the fun with this recipe for Triple Chocolate Mint Brownies; it will make you wish everyday was Chocolate Chip Day!
May 19th – Devil’s Food Cake Day
Today is a sinfully delicious day – Devil’s Food Cake Day! Try our Devil’s Food Cake Mix or any of our gluten-free, fair trade dessert mixes. They always have friends and family asking, “Are you sure this is gluten-free, it’s so good!”
May 25th – Wine Day
Enjoy a little fruit of the vine on wine day! Pair our Grown-up Grilled Cheese recipe (made with Gouda cheese) with a Pinot Grigio, a light white wine with a crisp citrus flavor.
May 27th – Memorial Day
Happy Memorial Day! If you're grilling with friends and family, add a few shakes of either our Steak or Spicy Steak Grilling Seasons® to hamburgers to take the taste up a notch! Use this coupon to save a little too!
May 30th – Salad Month
Salad Month provides the perfect incentive to try a new type of salad. Whether you’re looking for a fun leafy combination or an entirely fresh idea to try, check out our collection of salad recipes. Our Spring Salad with Citrus N Herb Vinaigrette has become an instant classic. Give it a try.
