Basic Vinaigrette….

Prepare a basic vinaigrette with…

  • 1 Tablespoon White Wine Vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Mustard
  • Salt & Pepper

When I make this I use small clean jam jar (I keep all my jars for making jam in the summer)

Place all the ingredients into the jar put on the lid and give it a good shake until it emulsifies, then its ready to serve.

It also stores well, and because its already in a jar with a lid it can just be put straight into the fridge once you have dressed your salad.

Its cheap to make too, using basic storecupboard ingredients..also easily thrown together in a matter of seconds and a tastey addition to your salad.


Frugal Summer Fruit’s Trifle

Frugal Summer Fruit’s Trifle

On a visit the supermarket the other day I walked past the “reduced” counter.. a couple of things caught my eye…

  • Organic Double Cream  … 20p
  • Ready made Sweet Custard … 40p

Remembering that I had some frozen summer fruits in the freezer and a strawberry jelly that just cost 7p, and a small tub of sprinkles, I had the makings of a gorgeous trifle…

Trifle is a big favourite with with the kids and my O/Half, so to be able to make one at a fraction of the cost of buying one from the cold counter in the supermarket… It was an absolute bargin..

Cost : £0.67!
