Sensational Sides: 5 Ways to Use Arugula
Arugula is one of those greens that tastes amazing all on its own. It's a little bit spicy so you don't need much to make a complete salad burst with flavor. Complement the spice with a citrus or creamy dressing, add in nuts or crispy bacon for crunch and toss with vegetables or protein to turn arugula salad into a complete meal.
