Arugula (also called wild rocket) is a spring garden treat in the Pacific Northwest, adding spice to mixed greens salads, or great by itself. And if you’ve grown it, you can make a fancy restaurant salad at home. My recipe is quite simple, but you can add shaved parmesan, pine nuts, or plate it over a Compton Family Farm fried egg!
