Kick Up the Flavor

Known for having a peppery taste, arugula is commonly used to intensify flavor in salads of all sorts. Often used in conjunction with vinaigrettes, the flavor of this leafy green is enhanced and mixes well with a variety of vegetables, fruits, and meats.

Our first recipe is Poached Egg and Arugula Salad Bruschetta. In this dish, top toasts with bacon-y arugula salad, or break the egg and let the golden yolk run over all. For a simple side, riff on hash brown potatoes by tossing refrigerated potato wedges with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Tuscan-Style New York Strip with Arugula-Artichoke Salad

Based on the classic bistecca Fiorentina – grilled porterhouse – this dish uses sirloin strip steaks, which are leaner (and, because they're boneless, a little easier to grill) than porterhouse. Lemon juice is a traditional accent in the dish, meant to cut the richness of the meat.

Wider, less-lobed Eruca sativa varieties, which are more palatable in larger quantities when dressed simply, would be a great topping on this pizza. This is a new take on a “steak and salad with a side of bread” and a fun way to enjoy dinner in a bite.
