Arugula is an aromatic peppery salad green.
It is also known as rocket, roquette, rugula, and rucola and is popular in Italian cuisine.
It grows wild in Asia and all over the entire Mediterranean.
Like most salad greens, arugula is very low in calories and is high in vitamins A and C. One, half cup, serving is two calories.
Chop into small pieces. Serve solo or add other baby greens.
Place arugula in a plastic bag in the most humid area of the refrigerator (usually the vegetable drawer). If leaves are wet, add a folded paper towel to the bag to absorb extra moisture.
Late winter to Spring in the greenhouse
Arrange a lovely handful of chopped arugula leaves (wash before serving) in individual bowls.
