Jen's Tomato Arugula Bruschetta

This is a wonderful combination of ripe plum tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, fresh garlic and arugula that together pack a punch when served on a slice of French bread.

Pesto with Arugula

Rating: 4.5 stars 59
This pesto is unique due to the arugula, which gives it a peppery bite. I also like the lack of cheese, but add it if you must. Use as a spread or on pasta. My favorite is on baguette slices or on whole wheat crackers. It's addictive!

A different and yummy potato salad; it uses no mayonnaise. This is a nice alternative to use arugula, rather than just adding it to a green salad.

Authentic Lebanese Fattoush

Rating: 4.5 stars 31
Fattoush is a Lebanese salad, good for hot weather. This recipe uses two unusual ingredients: sumac and purslane. Sumac, usually sold ground, is ground red berries and used in Middle Eastern, particularly Lebanese, cooking. Purslane is succulent with a lemony flavor, and makes a nice salad green. I find them at farmer's markets.
