Arugula leaves, also known as rocket or roquette, are tender and bite-sized with a tangy flavor. Along with other leafy greens, arugula is an immune-boosting vegetable that packs a nutritional punch, especially considering its tiny number of calories.
Like other leafy greens, arugula salad is one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat, especially when you add other vegetables to the mix.
When it comes to your health, as a high-antioxidant food, arugula can help improve almost every system in the body.
Arugula will storage well in a plastic bag, in the refrigerator. It'll keep for a week or more. Please note that we typically don’t wash the salad greens we pack for you unless they’re very dirty, because they store better unwashed. If you choose to wash your salad greens, invest in a salad spinner so you can be sure to get them truly dry. (A wet salad always disappoints.)
