Get a large French Roll (about €1.00)

Cut it in lengths and toast it

Spread a bit of olive oil or garlic oil over it and rub it in

Slice up the Vine Tomatoes (at room temperature for best flavour)

Slice up some Mozzarella (about 59c in Lidl and Aldi)

Put some fresh Basil Leaves on it and a sprinkle of Black Pepper to taste and hey presto - a VERY nice homemade nutritious Bruschetta

have to agree with you on that. Not really a tomato fan but had these on a sambo today and the taste off them was fantastic...never said that before about a tomato!

The key is to eat them at room temperature I think, straight out of the fridge and they do not have as much flavour at all.

Want to extract even more flavour? Cut them in half, put them on a baking tray with a pinch of salt and cook them at 140c for 1.5 hours

Your tastebuds won't know what hit them.

I dunno if all tomato packets say it, but on one I read, it recommended not putting them in the fridge as it hindered the ripening process.

Cucumber: Sweet cucumber pickle - The most basic recipe: (peel and deseed if you want) slice the cucumber thinly and put in a bowl. Splash on a bit of cider or rice vinegar, a table spoon of sugar, a bit of salt. Cover and leave overnight in the fridge. Lovely in a sandwich.

Lemons: Lemon drizzle cake - http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/4...n-drizzle-cake. The recipe states only zest of one lemon, but I always put at least two if not three.

Avocado: Use instead of butter in a sandwich. Tip: When mashed - keep the stone in it to stop it going brown.

Combine the avocado from Aldi with the 60 Cent mango's from Tesco and you can have a cheap posh salad

My local Dunnes matching Aldi again
Cucumber
Scallions
Avocado 2
Lemons 4
Sweet Potato
Salad Potatoes 1kg


I assume they either have a spy in Aldi HQ or have a mad scramble every week to source the same fruit&veg at the same price for all their stores
