Arugula (also known rocket) is very popular in Mediterranean cuisine. Arugula does not grow in a head but on stems. It has a peppery, slightly bitter taste. Try arugula on its own or mixed into salads. Arugula is also a nice addition in soups, potato salads, or made into a flavorful pesto. Look for long, slender, young leaves with a vibrant green color and with nice oval-shaped leaves. Avoid any with wet or bruised leaves. Arugula provides outstanding antioxidant qualities and is extremely high in vitamins A, B2, B9, C,  and K, and in minerals - manganese, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and calcium.
