Scott Said:Can i substitute spinach for arugula?
We Answered:In stores near me, arugula is not with the lettuce--it's with the specialty organic produce. And it's pricey--about $4 for 5 ounces! (I'm growing it in my garden this year.)
Substitute spinach, but add some extra black pepper to make up for it. Rest assured, your dish will still be delicious.
Don Said:I purchased what I thought was Arugula from Lowe's but now that it has grown it doesn't look like it. Help me?
We Answered:If you have pictures, post them! It's much easier to ID something from a picture than a description.
To post pictures, you need a photo hosting site. There are loads of free ones out there - like photobucket.
Then you upload your photo, and then copy and paste the link from the picture on the photo site to the body of the text as you ask a question. Users can then use the link to look at your picture.
Terrence Said:Can I substitute baby Swiss chard for baby arugula?
We Answered:You can, though the flavor will be a little different. Arugula has a peppery flavor. I would think that if you used a vegetable that you like, the flavored mayo would be delicious.
I've used many different herbs to flavor mayo. Tarragon is a great one, as is dill, marjoram, and basil. I also like to add in some roasted garlic. Oh, great. Now I'm hungry!

Mabel Said:What is a good recipe for an Arugula (Rocket) Salad?
We Answered:Here's what I make:
Loads of Arugula
Fresh sliced strawberries
Crumbled Gorgonzola Cheese
To make the dressing, simply mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, some vanilla extract, and mixed italian seasonings. Let set 15minutes to overnight.
If the strawberries aren't looking too good at your local market, any berry (especially blueberries) would taste great in this salad. If no berries look good, substitute dried cranberries, dried blueberries, or dried cherries.
Corey Said:What can I substitute arugula with that's not green?
We Answered:You might try raddichio which is purple and soft:
Other non-green salad fixings that she might be able to stomach:
- cucumbers with the skin peeled off
- zucchini with the skin peeled off
- roasted red, yellow or orange peppers
- mandarin oranges
- baby corn
- marinated artichoke hearts
- sliced apples
- sliced pears
- roasted eggplant
- sliced shallots
- dried cranberries
Does she not like green things because she thinks they are bitter? Maybe she would like spinach or green beans if they are sweetened.
Heck, even George Herbert Walker Bush in his 60s or 70s refuses to eat broccoli. Someone tried to make me eat things when I was 4 or 5 years old. I still remember it and I still won't eat them.
