Mixed Greens SimplySalad® Arugula

Arugula

  • Tasty greens
  • Great for containers

Arugula has such a wide range of uses that the easier question may be what can you not add Arugula to?  Young leaves have a slightly nutty flavor and go well with fruits, salads, even sandwiches - a favorite is one made with local honey, bacon, blue cheese and a healthy topping of the flavorful greens! Arugula is even found as a topping for pizza! However you enjoy this tasty green be aware that the mature leaves tend to have a spicy flavor while the younger ones described as a more nutty finish. These greens are excellent grown in containers or in a mixed veggie garden!
