First of all, I apologize again for my lack of posting in the past week. Second of all, on a lighter note, this blog has topped 1,100 hits! 😀 Third of all, the real post…
I’m not sure if all of my readers around the world consider arugula an exotic vegetable, but here in the United States, where I live, few people except for fancy chefs know of the lovely veggie know as arugula. Yes, many people would consider it strange to enjoy a vegetable enough to write a whole post about it, but, well, this food is quite interesting.
For those who do not yet know, arugula is an herb-like vegetable that looks very similar to dandelion leaves. It has a bitter flavor (I know most of you are now saying, “Yuck! Who would want to eat that?!”) with a nutty aftertaste, which is not very delicious alone. But it’s great in salad, sandwiches, and even for a snack with a little olive oil or ranch dressing on top. I encourage you to go out, buy some arugula seeds, and plant it yourself; if you live in an area that isn’t good for gardening, head over to the store sometime and give it a go!
I apologize for the lameness of this post, but I am running late and needed something to say!
