I planted arugula in my garden this year.  I wanted to try it since I have heard so much about it on various blogs and in numerous recipes.

I have been eating it fresh in my salads with various other garden fresh greens and have enjoyed it.  Today I attempted to make arugula pesto.  I am not certain if I like it as pesto or not though.  I am reserving final judgment for dinner tonight where I am serving it with chicken breasts and rice.  Hopefully, I like it better that way than I did when I was tasting it as I made it.

So, the question is do you like arugula?  If so how do you like it prepared best?


  1. I don't really like arugula. I know I am supposed to like it but I just can't bring myself to enjoy it. I know it is very good for you and very hip.

  2. I don't know if I have ever had it! I'm guessing I've had it in a salad if I had it at all.

  3. I have only ever had it fresh in a salad. I like it. We have never grown it in our garden tho.

  4. I actually want to try it.. as I see it all of the time as well, thank you Food Network.. Hopefully I will get around to trying it one of these days!


I love getting comments so please let me know what you think!
