Have you ever tried arugula? I highly encourage partaking in this green, grown organically, of course. It has a peppery flavor and is used as an herb, vegetable, or salad green. Arugula is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid, manganese, calcium, and magnesium; a very good source of riboflavin, potassium, copper, and iron; and a good source of zinc. It is an awesome herb, vegetable, and salad green. I planted a flat of seeds, and love the fragance it permeated throughout the greenhouse as it grew this month of March. This leafy green eluded to a fresh salad sometime soon. Well, today I had my first arugula salad for this spring season. Sliced a boiled egg, sprinkled some shredded cheddar, and lightly tossed with a simple buttermilk dressing. Yummy!!! And baby arugula is mighty tasty on a pizza or in pasta. Plans are made already for this weekend’s menu in this culinaire’s kitchen.
I love arugula salads! Yum! Do you know if it has any medicinal properties? Hmm, think I’ll plant some this spring. Thanks!
Other than its great nutritional value, I am not sure about its medicinal value. I will look into this. Arugula is easy to start from seed and grow. Have fun with it!
Truth be told, when it comes to gardening, I suddenly get so lazy. I should really work on this and now with your prompting and cool spring temperatures, I may do some this weekend. Thanks Deanna!
