last year it was reported that dandelions were the new arugula...i am not buying any at whole foods because i certainly have a good supply on hand! but something happened with the weather (hellish winter to immediate spring) and everything went from nothing to well, blooming...and dandelion leaves are a bit bitter for my palette after they bloom...really. so what i am trying to say is, i missed the dandelions again this year...but i was ready with the old arugula: arugula. the seed sprouted in three days, and it wont bolt like lettuce despite the 92° today.
love arugula: tangy, not bitter.
