Arugula also known as Rocket is rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, and carotenoids. In addition, compared to other leafy greens, it is low in oxalates, which are chemicals that inhibit the absorption of minerals into the body.
Our standard arugula picked at 2 weeks for smaller leaves, with a milder flavor.

How to use
I find that I eat more salad if it’s ready to go. So, when I take salad home, I do the following: Fill a large bowl with cold water.
- Fully submerge the lettuce in the water, then gently agitate the leaves to release any debris.
- Remove the lettuce from the water, then gently and thoroughly pat dry between paper towels or spin-dry the leaves in a salad spinner.
- Line a sturdy glass or plastic container with a few paper towels, then scatter your greens on top. Top with a matching lid and refrigerate. There should be some room in the container for the air to circulate, and the paper towels will absorb any excess moisture. (Circulation is key!)
- Don’t have an appropriate glass or plastic container? Use a plastic bag, just be sure to leave a small portion of it open so air can circulate. Leafy greens should stay fresh and crisp for 7 to 10 days. You can revive wilting lettuce by submerging the leaves in a bowl of ice water. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, then remove and thoroughly pat dry. This will shock and crisp up the leaves.
