Potatoes are a great budget food, since they’re usually relatively cheap and can keep for a very long time under the right conditions. This potato salad is a little different, with peppery arugula to round out the mild potato flavour.
Radish provides a bite while the cucumber cools you down in this salad under a dollar. It may seem simple, but simple food is often the best food! This particular salad is a great side to fish or chicken.
Lentils are another great budget staple. With many different types that come out with very different textures, lentil salads can take on just about any form. This rice and lentil salad is aromatic and herbaceous as well as filling.
