My recommendation is this Garden Cucumber Salad with Tuna and Fresh Basil from Kalyn’s Kitchen. It looks awesome! Serve with corn on the cob–boil the cobs for 4-5 minutes and slather with butter and salt. YUM!

This is the second year I’ve bought a basil plant. We don’t have a lot of room to grow things because we live in a condo, but we have a very small front flower bed where I’m allowed to plant. Last year my $1.50 basil plant grew into a bush that could have supplied the whole neighborhood with pesto. I think I may have watered it twice.

I am definitely pro spending $1.50 for an herb plant that will supply me with delicious fresh basil all summer instead of buying some for $2-3 at the grocery every time I need it. Had I not been gigantically pregnant, I probably would have frozen some of the basil to have later in the winter as well.

Here’s my favorite summer recipe to use the basil in: Summer Bow-Ties.

One thought on “Publix Bargain Meals: Garden Cucumber Salad with Tuna

  1. I buy a basil plant every year and every year I have to rely on my boss to bring me basil from her garden! But it’s still cheaper to buy the plant every time I need it rather than paying double for a few leaves!

    Great tip!
