Arugula is a peppery green that adds a spicy bite to salads, pizzas, and raw dishes. Also known as rocket, arugula is mild when cooked. Arugula is an early summer crop, and a member of the brassica family; like kale, cabbage, cauliflower, and mustard greens. Arugula is a great source of vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, C, and K and iron.
Keep arugula in a plastic bag in the refrigerator’s vegetable bin for up to a week.
