Hello, frugal foodies! Today, we’re doing a deep dive – into the delicious world of Marinated Artichoke Hearts. Picture this: succulent, tangy, and brimming with flavor – all from a humble can of artichokes (along with a little kitchen magic!)
Welcome, guys, to the Frugal Hausfrau’s Kitchen, where culinary creativity and cost-saving prowess come together in perfect harmony! Today, we embark on a journey through the enticing realms of Italian cuisine with my Favorite Antipasto Salad.
I first had this Sun-Dried Tomato Feta Pasta Salad from the grocery deli and I was in love at first bite! It was like every flavor in that salad (which is filled with bold flavor) was jumping in turn, hoping to get noticed; keeping my interest and making me want to go back for another bite and another!
Awhile back, way back when, I made Slow Roasted Tomatoes, a technique I stole from Bon Appetit. They are more fabulous than words can say, but when I say slow-roasted, I mean six to eight hours in the oven slow. Something I don’t mind when it’s maybe minus 20 degrees outside (yanno I’m from Minnesoda, you betcha) but that can wear thin in our warmer weather. Then I had an aha moment. What if I made Slow Roasted Cherry Tomatoes? I figured I’d have all the flavor and a lot less time invested. Win. Win.

Easy Basil Pesto Vinaigrette has got to be the easiest salad dressing ever! As long as you have a little Pesto, that is! It’s such a quick cheat and will be fabulous on all kinds of greens and/or pasta salads. I used it the other day in my Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Apples & Feta and it was a beautiful marriage.
