I'm on a prosciutto, burrata, and arugula kick lately. I recently had the most amazing prosciutto, burrata, and arugula salad at one of my favorite restaurants and I haven't been able to take my mind off the three ingredients since. These crostinis are my interpretation of that fateful dish, with the much drier mozzarella standing in for its creamy counterpart.Click here to see 11 Easy Appetizer Recipes.

This hearty, healthy, filling salad is tasty and easy, the latter because it’s almost completely grilled. It’s seriously simple and tasty. Sweet from the onion and pepper, tangy from the grilled lemon, filling and texturally satisfying because of the char-grilled potatoes, it’s a salad that doesn’t feel like a "salad."Click here to see Make Dinner More Interesting — 8 Great Side Dish Recipes.

I can't deny it, my mandolin still scares me a little. But, I swallow my fear and use it for this delicious spring salad. Thinly shaved raw asparagus adds crunch to this lemony and nutty salad. It's great alongside grilled meats or fish, but also works as a meal on its own.Since the ingredients are so simple, it really tastes best with the freshest produce possible (especially when in season).

Every Saturday during spring, summer, and fall, Barry and I walk over for lunch at the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene — part antiques market, part junk sale, part craft fair, part artisanal food court. It's also great people-watching; aside from a reliably cute crew of scruffy Brooklynites and international tourists, celebs ranging from Martha Stewart to Michael Stipe are regularly spotted poking through the treasures. But the real action for us is in the well-curated street food: fabulous Salvadorian pupusas (thick corn tortillas stuffed with pork, beans, and cheese), brick-oven pizza, sandwiches of brisket and porchetta, and my favorite, approximated here, from Brooklyn's own Salvatore Ricotta. This is a quick and perfect treat, an ideal use for homemade ricotta.See all bruschetta recipes.

Skip the mashed potatoes this time and make risotto instead. The potatoes in this recipe are simmered in a flavorful chicken stock until perfectly tender, and then are stirred into a cheesy risotto. A handful of arugula adds the perfect sharp bite.


Fresh greens, fruit, and vegetable elements come together in in this crunchy, refreshing salad that offers a unique mix of flavors and textures. Peppery arugula, crisp, fragrant fennel, and juicy, sweet-tart grapefruit mingle harmoniously in a simple olive dressing with a little grapefruit juice.

Everyone loves an Italian sub, but sometimes the size is simply too much. This sandwich calls for a ciabatta roll, which is much smaller than a hoagie, but can still hold up to this ingredient-packed sandwich. Layers of roasted rosemary ham and salami are piled high with roasted red peppers, roasted yellow peppers, basil, arugula, olive oil, and white balsamic glaze. The flavors of your favorite Italian sub, but in a serving for one.

Use real lemon juice (and zest if time).

Growing up, real lemons weren’t ever in our house. But now that Alex and I run our own kitchen, they’re a mainstay on the counter! Real lemon juice can’t be replicated by lemon juice in a bottle: it just can’t! So make sure to use a real lemon for this and all recipes on our website!

If you have time, add zest of 1/2 lemon to the mix. The best way to zest? Alex and I use a microplane grater (here’s one we like), which makes quick work of it. (PS If you want to really dress up this salad, you could use our Citrus Salad Dressing: it uses lemon and orange and adds big flavor.)


Why and How to Eat Arugula

Before we jump to how to eat arugula, let’s talk about the why.

First reason why: because arugula might be the most nutrient-dense leafy green on the planet.

Compared to typical grocery store lettuce, arugula offers:

  • 8x more calcium,
  • 5x more vitamin A,
  • 5x more vitamin C,
  • 5x more vitamin K, and
  • 4x more iron.

Oh, and that spicy flavor? That’s the result of isothiocyanates and erucin, potent cancer-fighting compounds found in particularly high concentrations in arugula.

Sylvetta arugula flowers. The flowers and seeds of arugula are edible too like the leaves, they also pack a spicy punch.

Don’t worry. Healthy food — including arugula — shouldn’t taste bad in a meal. This is where it’s important to know how to eat arugula…

Arugula isn’t like a piece of organic fruit… It’s not something you’ll just sit down and eat by the handful.

Think of arugula as an ingredient, like an herb, that adds unique flavor and nuance to a meal. You wouldn’t eat a pile of oregano, would you? But try to imagine a marina sauce without oregano included!

The same principle applies to arugula, which adds a wonderful flavor and texture to an infinite array of foods and beverages.

Don’t take our word for it. Bon Apetit has 31 recipes showing you how to eat arugula that will get your creative culinary juices flowing.

Arugula Salad

We’ve also discovered an odd “hack” for eating relatively large quantities of raw arugula.

We’ve never tested this hack on a larger audience, so it might not hold true for everyone… If you make a salad dressing with:

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil,
  • 2 teaspoons whole grain mustard,
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar,
  • 2 teaspoons honey,
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste,

then toss it with about 6 cups of arugula leaves, you can make an all-arugula salad that’s not just tolerable, but downright delicious.

Astro arugula leaves are the largest and perhaps best-flavored of all the arugula varieties.

We’re not sure which ingredient — or combination of ingredients — neutralizes the spicy kick from the arugula greens, but something in the dressing does the trick. Or maybe we’re just oddballs.

I love this recipe as is and almost always make it as written. But in case you'd like to vary the basic recipe, here are a few ideas for you:

  • You can add protein to the salad and turn it into a main-dish salad. Good examples include shredded cooked chicken, grilled shrimp, and thinly sliced meat (such as grilled skirt steak).
  • Add sliced cherry tomatoes. It's very tasty and it also adds a nice splash of color to the salad.
  • Add crumbled bacon pieces.

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 egg beaten with 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano, plus a little extra for shaving over the top
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 veal scallopini, pounded to 1/4-inch thickness, about 6 ounces each
  • about 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 big handfuls of baby arugula
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, cut into sixths
  • Some fresh basil leaves, if you have them on hand
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon, cut in half

Place flour in one shallow bowl or pie plate and beaten egg in a second. Combine parmesan and breadcrumbs in third and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Dredge veal in flour, then egg. Allow excess egg to drip off, then transfer to breadcrumbs. Turn to coat evenly, pressing crumbs so they adhere. Transfer scallopini to a large plate.

Add oil to a small skillet and heat over medium-high heat until shimmering and corner of veal dipped in oil immediately starts bubbling. Carefully add one piece of veal to hot oil. Cook, swirling pan occasionally until golden brown on first side, about 1 1/2 minutes. Carefully turn with tongs and cook until second side is golden brown, about 1 minute longer. Adjust heat as necessary to prevent oil from burning—veal should bubble steadily. Transfer veal to paper towel-lined plate and season immediately with salt. Drain on a paper towel. Repeat with second veal scallopino

Toss arugula, tomatoes, basil and extra parmesan shavings in a medium bowl with olive oil and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve veal and salad immediately.

How to make Arugula Caprese Salad:

  1. Prep veggies. Slice the red onion thinly. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half.
  2. Strain mozzarella balls. Using a colander, strain the mozzarella balls, saving a couple tablespoons of the marinade from the package.
  3. Make the dressing. Combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, the reserved marinade, a splash of honey, and kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Assemble. In a large bowl, combine the arugula, red onion, cherry tomatoes, and mozzarella balls. Drizzle the dressing on the salad. If you aren’t eating the entire salad, drizzle the dressing on individual servings.
  5. EAT.

This is a relatively small amount of salad, especially if you are “greens lovers” like my family. If you are serving more than four, you should double this recipe.
