Spinach becoming blase? Try peppery arugula instead—in salads, sandwiches, and more.
Arugula, also known as rocket or Italian cress, is a bitter, peppery green with an assertive flavor.
It’s stronger than spinach, but can be used most any place spinach is. It’s best raw in a salad or tossed in hot pasta until just wilted. We love it in a salad with dried cranberries, almonds, oil and vinegar, in a ham sandwich in lieu of lettuce or tossed on pizza.
Peppery arugula, sweet scallops and fresh watermelon combine to create this lovely, light summer salad.
Bacon, lettuce and the best tomatoes you can buy or grow stack up on a perfect sandwich.
Ripe tomatoes and leafy green arugula converge a top this simple and summery Italian appetizer.
