$1.00 Simple Side Salad

For this simple side salad, I use any salad leaves (kale, baby spinach, roquette), spare veggies (capscium, onion, carrot etc), and an adaptable dressing to suit the meal. I often stir through some fermented vegetables or have them on the side.  

Makes: 2 serves

Ingredients:

Handful of salad leaves $0.80
Spare vegetables $0.50
2 Tablespoons of olive oil $0.30
2 Tablespoons of lemon juice $0.30
1 Clove of garlic $0.10
Total

Per meal

$2.00

$1.00

Method:

Whisk oil, lemon juice, crushed garlic. Salt and pepper taste. Lightly coat leaves and vegetable with dressing. Serve.

If you want to jazz it up, add a ¼ tablespoon of wine vinegar, some cheese (feta, parmigiano, etc), and/or something sweet to the mix. For sweet, think chutneys, quince paste, maple syrup, sliced stone fruit. Just use what you’ve got in the fridge. Keep it simple.
