Arugula also known as salad rocket is a nutritious leafy green vegetable considered an herb. It has been grown in the Mediterranean area since Roman times and is considered an aphrodisiac. Popular in Italy and France arugula didn’t catch on in the U.S.or Britain until the 1990’s. It has a bitter, peppery, mustard flavor. Because it is so potent on its own it is usually mixed in a salad with milder greens to add a balance taste. You can add to your pasta, soup or topping for pizza.
Personally, I enjoy the flavor of arugula. I don’t buy it often but when I do adding it to my salad is a nice change. What about on a sandwich?
