When Salad Feels Like a Treat

A classic dish, for lunch and dinner

Super-Cheap Dinner #11

We’re going to make subscribing to The Bittman Project worth it, in part by offering super-cheap, super-delicious recipes you’ll want to cook. The idea is that we’ll post one ultra-budget-friendly recipe each week for our members only. While this can’t ever be more than back-of-the-napkin math (“affordable” is subjective), we figure that cooking your way through these recipes over the course of the year will more than offset the cost of an annual subscription, which amounts to about $1.35 per week.

This week’s installment is something of a classic: spinach, served with bacon, eggs, and a warm dressing. If you happen to have bitter greens around — dandelion, mustard or turnip greens, watercress, etc. — those work great here, too.
