Arugula
Return to Farm store
Other names:
rugola, rucola, roquette, garden rocket, Mediterranean rocket, salad rocket, Roman rocket, or Italian cress

Nutrition:
Arugula is very low in calories and is a good source of vitamins A and C, folate, calcium, and magnesium.

Taste: 
Arugula is a spicy little leaf, which some describe as bitter and others characterize as having a "peppery-mustardy" flavor.

Uses:
Because it is so potent on its own, it is often mixed with milder greens to produce a nice balanced salad. It can also be sautéed in olive oil.

Substitutions:
You can substitute most any green for arugula, but the closest matches are Belgian endive, escarole, and dandelion greens.

Storage:
Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Try to use within 5 days.
