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.
