A 99 cent meal
What is the cheapest thing in the produce section? Well, here in the United States, a head of lettuce is around 99 cents! Cha-Ching!

If you are low on grocery money, wonderful to purchase.

If you are watching your weight, another reason to buy.

If you are simply wanting to get in more lettuce to your diet, even better!

All other ingredients, you probably already have in your pantry!

99 Cent Salad
Leiann Lynn Rose Spontaneo

Ingredients and instructions are…

1 Tear a head of lettuce into pieces.
2 Drizzle red wine vinegar and Crisco oil over lettuce. Both with 2 capfuls.
3 Sprinkle salt and pepper.

If you do not have red wine vinegar or Crisco oil, use whatever vinegar and oil that you have.

99 cent salad goes good with spaghetti, another frugal meal.

Do you need to prepare a dish for a gathering? Make the 99 cent presentable even if only 99 cents! People are not going to know how much it costs.

Do you have items lurking in your fridge? Do you have a tomato, mushrooms, green bell pepper or cucumber? Toss them in!

Do you have any lunch meat in your fridge? Tear in pieces and toss them in! Personally, I like pepperoni.

I hope that you like these tips! Leave me any comments!

It's interesting how much prices vary from place to place. An iceberg lettuce costs $8 - $12 here in Queensland right now (because of the flooding we had earlier in the year). Hopefully it will get back to normal sometime soon.
