Recipe: Arugula caprese salad

Salads with aromatic herbs
September 09, 2009

ArugulaI'm growing arugula (or rocket) in a pot, and it always amazes me with its weekly harvest of fresh leaves.
Its tangy taste is perfect with many ingredients, like ham and salami. Try it in an hot dog and you will be surprised!

Do you love arugula as much as I do? I so missed growing my own. Whenever I find it at the Farmers Market, I grab all I can reasonably use.
