VIDEO: Using Fresh Arugula
Arugula is in season in Barrington and Chef Erin Bailey tells us her favorite way to use it.
This week in Barrington, we have arugula in season. Arugula is more common in Italian cuisine. It has a really strong flavor which not everyone likes.
My husband and I love it, even just in a salad with lemon, garlic and olive oil. If that's a little bit too much for you, you can use it in a smaller quantity as a garnish for grilled meat.
Erin's Arugula Recipe
2 handfulls of fresh, washed and dried arugula
1 clove garlic, pressed
2 Tbs olive oil
A pinch sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
Toss ingredients together in a bowl to coat arugula leaves. Use a generous fingerfull to top the meat of your choice
Makes enough to serve four
