Today’s Secret Ingredient for Friday Foodie Fix is Arugula! I love that peppery little green leaf. If you happen to plant one in your garden be ready to be showered with lots of great harvests. I planted on little plant last year and it spread like crazy and we were overflowing with arugula.
You will often hear Arugula called Rocket, especially if you watch Jamie Oliver’s show Jamie at Home. He has more creative ways to use this little gem that are so tasty. I like to add it to salads, sandwiches, pastas, and make pesto with it. It was part of my Pesto Shrimp on Polenta Portobellos and Salad with Champagne Dijon Vinaigrette.
