What to make with arugula

This week was the first week of my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share, which was so exciting. Beyond the obvious advantages of having a regular supply of farm-fresh produce all summer, the “grab bag” nature of it challenges me to find new and interesting ways to use up all the goodies when they are fresh.

In this week’s CSA share: Strawberries, Bok Choy, Alfalfa and Sandwich Sprouts, Mixed Leaf Lettuce and finally, Arugula. Hmmm … Arugula.

I like arugula but I’m ashamed to say that I tend to just throw it in with other salad greens and that’s about it. I definitely needed a dose of arugula creativity. I thought I’d explore online for some new and interesting ways to use it. Here’s what I discovered – When it comes to using arugula beyond the salad, think Pizza, Pesto and Pasta!
