Baby arugula is simply arugula harvested young for its more petit, delicate leaves and flavor. Although not as intense in flavor as its mature counterparts, it still retains that peppery essence and mustard quality that distinguishes arugula from other herbs and leafy greens.
Fresh greens are great for livening up that everyday salad, but they can be so much more… Braised greens with chicken stock and smoked sausage rounds and a side of cornbread makes for a great down-home meal. Fresh spicy greens go well next to a hunk of hard cheese under a drizzle of good balsamic vinegar for a savory snack. And they are perfect as a garnish to add a splash of intensity to any gourmet plate.
