Arugula

arugula fresh harvest

Arugula is a delicate green with an intense sharpness and bite, which complements any salad.  Arugula is great when  used as a bed for a hot steaming dish such as fish.  Used in this way arugula wilts and its aroma fills the plate.

Storage and Preparation:

The arugula must be washed before eating.  Arugula should be stored in the bag in which it is purchased at about 35 – 40 degrees or the crisper drawer in your refrigerator.  Arugula should last for at least one week in the refrigerator.
