Dollar Store Cooking Vol. 1 - Pasta Salad

I've been thinking about trying this experiment for a while, so here's the first attempt.
1. Everything must be purchased from the dollar store or listed as a cheat.
2. Leftovers (stuff you didn't use) can be used later.
3. Cost = Items Purchased + Cheats - Leftovers

Items purchased:
1. Mini cucumbers
2. Roma tomatoes
3. Bell peppers
4. Green onions
5. Sliced turkey
6. Asparagus salad
7. Black olives
8&9 Pasta Salad mix.

Cheats = Salt, crushed red pepper, a little bit of italian dressing.


1/2 of the cucumbers
1/2 of the tomatoes
2/3 of the peppers
3/4 of the onions

Bottom line:
Items purchased ~ 9.00
+ cheats ~ 0.10
- leftovers ~ 2.41
Total = 6.69

Fed 6 = $1.13 per serving.

I should have bought a box of saltines!
