In this post I will show you how I harvest my arugula and spring greens, provide several ideas on what to do with your arugula, (store bought is fine too) as well as the recipes. It turned into an epic post, sorry. I wanted to keep it all together, though. Let me know what you think or if you have questions.
A peak into my "Spring Greens" garden and how to harvest them.
A super simple Arugula salad with recipe below the video
Super Simple Arugula Salad
bowl of clean arugula
salt and pepper
fresh lemon juice
Ideas of things to add to this salad to make it more substantial or to change things up a bit:
cooked chicken breast
sliced strawberries or Mandarin oranges
goat cheese instead of feta (added at the end on top)
pine nuts or any nut of choice
Sauteing your arugula with some chopped onion and sweet peppers and then adding eggs, milk and cheese makes a delicious frittata.
I also made a delicious pasta dish using my arugula.
Chop lots of garlic, sun dried tomatoes and fresh arugula
( I should have used way more, as it shrinks quite a bit)
Saute the garlic and sun dried tomatoes in plenty of olive oil for a few minutes.
fresh chopped garlic
chopped sun dried tomatoes
chopped fresh arugula
olive oil, salt and pepper
cooked chicken breasts
fresh grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
There you have it, an epic arugula post! Have a wonderful weekend!
