Arugula is an assertive green with a peppery bite and great versatility: it complements sweet and rich ingredients, such as figs or roasted onions, while holding its own alongside stronger flavors, such as olives and lemon juice.
Quick idea No. 1: Use in sandwiches instead of lettuce. Great with chicken, turkey, or steak, hearty cheeses, and spreads such as mango chutney or cranberry relish.
Quick idea No 2: Toss with sliced stone fruit, pecans, and a dressing of lemon juice, honey, and olive oil. Sprinkle crumbled feta or blue cheese on top.
