RECIPE: KT’s Late Summer Tomato, Mozzarella, and Melon Salad PDF Print E-mail

Cut out and clip this recipe to your July or August calendar to make when tomatoes and melons are in season. And remember when purchasing basil at the Co-op, it stays fresher in our walk-in refrigerator, so ask someone who is working in our Produce Department to get it for you in half or full bunches.

Serves 8

INGREDIENTS

½ medium melon, seeds scooped out, cantaloupe or honeydew 

1 pint cherry tomatoes, small ones, any color you like 

1 cup small fresh mozzarella balls

1 tablespoon olive oil

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

8 basil leaves, washed and dried

DIRECTIONS

Scoop out the melon using a special baller tool or a small spoon. Place the melon balls in a large bowl.

Add the cherry tomatoes and mozzarella balls to the bowl.

Add the oil, salt, and pepper and stir to coat the ingredients.

Divide the salad among shallow bowls, artfully garnish each with a basil leaf, and serve.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS: Shareholder Ownership PDF Print E-mail

February 2017
by Emily Kornheiser 

Sometimes when I'm filling my jar with oats, or selecting the perfect grapefruit I forget that the Co-op is more than a grocery store. And we are. To my eyes two things stand out that make the Co-op the dynamic powerful organization of community that it is: shareholder ownership and our focus on the ends. Both shareholder ownership and our focus on the ends shapes our decisions—both as a board and as an organization­—beyond the bottom line or profit motive. Yes,
