I know what you’re thinking--the gardening lady is buying tomatoes?
Yes, I sure am! And there are two good reasons for this.
First, my tomato seedlings are currently 2 inches tall, and this yummy recipe can’t wait. Second, if you want delicious tomatoes any time of the year, you can rely on NatureSweet.
Many of my friends in high school had parents who were farmworkers. As a result of knowing them and others in this space, I feel strongly about farmworkers’ rights.
I’ve seen NatureSweet tomatoes at the grocery store for years, but I was unaware of everything they do for their Associates (employees). Check this out:
- NatureSweet is Fair Trade Certified, which means they adhere to rigorous social, environmental, and economic standards.
- They also meet the industry’s highest standards for working conditions, food safety, and pest management--the Equitable Food Initiative.
- Associates receive fair pay, health and safety training, and benefits, as well as programs to help them further their education.
How cool is that? I think most of the companies in the produce section could learn a thing or two here.
Why NatureSweet Cherubs?
NatureSweet has lots of delicious, juicy tomato varieties (I’m a big fan of the multicolored Constellations). All of their tomatoes are hand-picked and hand-packaged, so you know they’ve been treated with care from the farm to your plate.
I chose Cherubs for this recipe because they’re compact grape tomatoes with meaty flesh. Their skin is a bit thicker than cherry tomatoes, so they hold up better and won’t split in your lunchbox.
Cherubs are perfect for this healthy salad because they’re low calorie, low fat, and full of vitamins C and A. They’re also cholesterol free and a good source of fiber. You just can’t get better than that!
