Fresh Arugula Salad has a rich, peppery taste, and has an exceptionally strong flavour for a leafy green.  It is generally used in salads, often mixed with other greens in a mesclun. It is rich in vitamin C and potassium & combined with raw veggies, a bit of oil and vinegar dressing, and you have a simple but perfect combination.

What is Arugula?
Arugula (also known as rocket, rocket salad, rughetta,
roquette or rucola), is a leafy green vegetable with a
pungent "hot" or "stimulating" flavour. It is usually eaten
raw in salads but can also be steamed or cooked and
served with meat or pasta.

Arugula has been grown in the Mediterranean region
since Roman times, and it was once considered to be
an aphrodisiac. It was traditionally collected from the
wild and not grown commercially until recent years.

In The Kitchen with Arugula / Rocket
Harvested young leaves, which are used in pasta,
risotto, the pesto, soups and stews, or salads, alone
or in combination (mixed greens).

In Italy, the rocket is often used in pizzas, added at the last minute of cooking or immediately after, so that
leaves do not wilt in the heat. On the island of Ischia in the Bay of Naples , an alcohol digestive called rucolino
is prepared from the plant. This liqueur is a local delicacy which is eaten as limoncello or grappa .

In Egypt , the rocket is commonly eaten for breakfast in a stew of beans.

Cultivation and Usage
It is used as a leaf vegetable, which looks like a longer leaved and open lettuce. It is rich in vitamin C and potassium. It is frequently cultivated, although domestication cannot be considered complete. It has been grown in the Mediterranean area since Roman times, and is considered an aphrodisiac. Before the 1990s it was usually collected in the wild and was not cultivated on a large scale or researched scientifically. In addition to the leaves, the flowers (often used in salads as an edible garnish), young seed pods and mature seeds are all edible.

It is now cultivated in various places, especially in Veneto, Italy,
but is available throughout the world. It is also locally naturalised
away from its native range in temperate regions around the world,
including northern Europe and North America. In India, the
mature seeds are known as Gargeer.

It has a rich, peppery taste, and has an exceptionally strong
flavour for a leafy green. It is generally used in salads, often
mixed with other greens in a mesclun, but is also cooked as a
vegetable or used raw with pasta or meats in northern Italy and
in coastal Slovenia(especially Koper/Capodistria), where it is
added to the cheese burek. In Italy, rocket is often used in
pizzas, added just before the baking period ends or immediately
afterwards, so that it will not wilt in the heat.
