Cheap and delicious country salad

Hi everyone!

If you follow me on Instagram you should know that I like cook and eat of course. I'm big fan of different kind of salads. Today I'm gonna show you my new idea for easy and cheap one. Enjoy! :)

Ingredients and prices for 2 large servings:
*Iceberg lettuce (49p)
*4 Eggs (50p)
*Tomatoes (60p)
*Bacon (I used 200 g (40p))
*Half red onion (10p)
*3 pieces of bread (bought reduced (20p))

1. Slice lettuce, tomatoes, onion and bacon.
2. Boil eggs and cut into quarters.
3. Cut bread into small pieces. For croutons prepare olive oil and some spices like chilli and basil (something about 20p). It's up to you. Mix small pieces of bread with olive oil and spices and fry in a pan to make them crisp. 
4. Fry bacon.
5. Mix everything and your salad is almost ready. 

If you would like add some dressing use greek style yoghurt (3 big spoons (30p)), clove of garlic (10p), salt and paper (10p).

I spent £2,99 for 2 large servings. 

Saving money tips:
1. Don't throw bread if it's not quiet fresh. You can use it to do croutons.
2. Find at shop cooking bacon. It's realy cheap option because it's already cut into small slices. I bought this one at Morrisons for 90 p per 500 g. 

Hope you enjoy!
