An Incredibly Cheap Salad Recipe

Carrots are consistently among the cheapest vegetables in the supermarket. And they’re also one of the most versatile. Here’s what I paid for this salad:

  • 2 lb. bag carrots: $1.98
  • 1/2 cup Feta cheese (I got mine from the grocery store salad bar): $.25
  • Olive oil: $.20

Total cost: $2.43 for four servings

Money-saving tip: Some grocery store salad bars have Feta cheese as a salad topping. You can save money by purchasing just what you need off the salad bar instead of buying an entire block of package of Feta cheese.
