 Arugula is a great source of Vitamin A and Vitiamin K.  

We use Arugula in salads a lot. Do you like arugula? Do the kids?

We do. Well, DS likes it if it has Ranch dressing on it. It's sort of peppery tasting.

That peppery taste is what I like.
My son likes a Greek vinaigrette dressing on his arugula

I really like it in salads, but I don't make salad often except in the summer... Might be fun to grow in the garden this year.

We like it in salads and in lettuce wraps.

I love Arugula!  It's so tasty!  I don't think I've ever seen it in the grocery store here except for in a salad mix.  I love it when it comes in my dinner salad at the restaurant.

That's a good idea. I have never tried to grow it.

It's hard to find alone in the grocery stores I have found. We have a couple speciality stores that have it sometimes

Me either... I just grew this really great "butter leaf" lettuce last summer and it was delicious. I'm definitely expanding the leafy greens section of my garden this summer. :-)

I love to get the arugula/spinach mix.  Yum!

I love arugula. It has a nice pepper taste to it. I should get it more often than I do.
