This tender green has a tangy flavor. It is included in many Mesclun mixes, but we package these separately so that you can add flavor your salads, or perhaps substitute it for lettuce as a wrap or on sandwiches, or quickly wilt it using olive oil. These greens are not commonly found in the grocery store, so this link provides several suggestions for how to use it. It is mentioned by several classical Mediterranean authors as an aphrodisiac. Arugula is also a good source of Vitamin C and Potassium. It can be substituted for arugula in almost any recipe so consider Arugula Strawberry salad which is a popular recipe among CSA Shareholders. Other favorites include Arugula Fig Pizza, or Arugula Pesto, or these Corn Crepes.
