Try a new take on a Caesar salad with arugula, pecorino cheese, lemon juice, and Italian dressing as your ingredients. You could add tomato and green onion and/or mix in other types of lettuce for variety.

Another popular salad combo is arugula, other mixed greens, dried cranberries, blue cheese, and walnuts. You can also use arugula in place of lettuce in sandwiches or sautéed and mixed into pasta dishes.

Arugula provides beneficial nutrition but has few calories. It is a leafy green veggie with a spicy kick. Arugula leaves are high in nutrients, including beta-carotene, vitamin C, folate, and magnesium, all of which are key to helping the body’s organ systems function properly.

While arugula doesn’t look anything like broccoli, it is cruciferous and offers many of the same health benefits as broccoli, kale, and Brussels sprouts. Arugula is relatively inexpensive and easy to find pre-packaged in most grocery stores. It’s also easy to grow at home in a windowsill garden or outside.

The nutrients in arugula help the body’s cardiovascular, nervous, and digestive systems work properly and offer other health benefits as well.
