We Hope You Packed Your Appetite.

Dole Passport to Flavor is back with an array of stunning new recipes from around the globe.

While each recipe introduces a unique take on a regional favorite, they all have one thing in common – no added sugars, but that doesn’t mean we’re skipping the sweetness.

As part of our Sweetened by Sunshine platform, we’re focusing on recipes that utilize the natural sweetness of DOLE Fruit to complement and enhance some of our favorite global-inspired dishes.

The cuisine of Cyprus can be characterized as well-seasoned, but not spicy. Instead you’ll find a heavy use of fruits including cherries, peaches, mandarins and more across all dayparts – breakfast, desserts and entrées.

While the food of Cyprus is quite similar to the majority of Greece, the region offers its own unique take on many traditional Greek foods. For instance, while halloumi cheese is found throughout the country, the halloumi you’ll find in Cyprus is often unique as it comes from the milk of local thyme-fed goats for a distinct, herbal flavor.

Greek Yogurt, not only popular in Greece, but now all over the world, is the thickest, most nutrient-dense yogurt there is.

Included on the menu of nearly every Greek restaurant, Halloumi is a semi-hard cheese with a subtly tangy flavor that has shown a menu growth of 33% over the past 4 years.

A land adorned with vineyards and citrus groves, the food culture of Italy is one that believes in letting the ingredients of a dish shine. While these dishes may seem simple, they are not only incredibly flavorful, but beautifully executed.

When it comes to Sicilian cuisine, refinement is key. Each ingredient has a purpose. Fruit is often used in Sicilian cuisine as it offers a flavor that is complementary without being overpowering, helping to bring balance to each dish.

Across Sicily, locals and visitors enjoy granita not only at breakfast but throughout the day, paired with a meal or enjoyed as a mid-afternoon snack.
