Summer Greens....Let's Talk Arugula

Salads and summers just seem to go together, you think? As the weather gets hotter we tend to gravitate towards lighter meals and leave the heavy ones for comforting us during those long winter months (although, are we sure it's actually June yet??)

Arugula, although maybe not as well know as the regular staples in our salads, packs a nutritional punch just like powerhouse favs broccoli and kale. With that tangy, peppery flavour it adds a delicious kick to any salad.

Heads up, if you're looking for some at the local market you gotta be quick, it sells out fast!

Added bonus: Arugula usually lasts longer in your fridge that kale or spinach. Score!

We've pulled a few of our fav Arugula Salad recipes for you to try out at your next BBQ. Can't wait to hear what you think!
