This peppery green, also known as rocket, roquette, rugula and rucola, is a member of the mustard family.
Keep arugula refrigerated, stored in a perforated plastic bag, away from fruits to avoid deterioration. Best eaten within a few days.
The leaves are mostly eaten raw in salads, although sometimes gently cooked or pureed in sauces and pestos.
