Valley Bounty, October 26, 2013: Arugula
Arugula’s peppery bite—and healthy green—makes it a good addition to the richer flavors of fall. Try topping an arugula salad with pears or a creamy blue cheese. Pile chopped arugula on a pizza after the sizzling pie comes out of the oven (I like it with caramelized onions, dried tomatoes, and bacon or prosciutto). Arugula can also hold it’s own in a sharp cheddar grilled cheese sandwich, and if you’re already missing summer’s basil pesto, try substituting arugula.
