Growing in popularity, arugula is a salad green that I find on my sandwiches in local eateries, and I ain’t complaining. It is more flavourful than just having a bit of plain lettuce in its place. It also works well in tomato-based foods, like pasta sauce, minestrone & pizza. Like all of the other mentioned leafy greens, arugula contains a fair share of vitamin K & accordingly, it can interfere with blood thinner medications. It might not be an issue for most YDV readers, but as a registered dietitian, I feel I need to throw that info out there.
So, that’s just a taste of the other greens that are out there. I didn’t even mention spinach, turnip greens, escarole, romaine, mustards, dandelion – and the list goes on. Get to the market. Buy your kale, but also add a new green or two to the mix. You can thank me later.
