Arugula is a nutritional powerhouse, containing significant folate (folic acid) and calcium. In fact, it has more than eight times as much of this bone-building mineral as iceberg lettuce. Arugula is a cruciferous vegetable member, so go easy (no more than 1-2 servings per week) on this one if you have a slow thyroid. It contains cancer-fighting phytochemicals. Yay!
Throwing in baby tomatoes, especially the ones in season (so they are ripe and you can taste the sun in your mouth) makes them just such a lovely couple. Enjoy!
