*Johnna’s tip: With the price of many things in the grocery store constantly increasing, it’s time to come up with some money saving techniques for the kitchen. One way to start is by making little things that can go a long way i.e. salad dressing. Balsamic vinegar is an excellent item to keep in your pantry because you can use it for a plethora of things such as: marinating tool for baked chicken or another desired meat and of course, salad dressing. Keep on hand for those times when you don’t feel like spending $4-$5 on a bottle of dressing you can easily make at home.
