I understand that this is not a question and answer blog, but I want to put it out there that I hate arugula. I really do. I got some arugula two weeks ago for this pasta salad I made with gorgonzola, walnuts and arugula. I have been searching for other things to do with it and have been quite disappointed with the outcome. Tonight I made quite a tasty dish which called for arugula, tomotoes, shrimp and pasta, but again it called for such a small amount I still have half the bag! When will it end?! I understand there are countless salad possibilities with arugula but it such a bitter green that I only like it hot and wilted.
If anyone has any suggestions or just wants to jump in with my pain. Feel free.
P.S.: I would have added a pic of my dish but the arugula is just so boring I don’t think anyone would care to look at it.

  1. I so agree with you about arugula. I was extremely disappointed with its taste – I never used up my bunch and ended up throwing it away.


  2. arugula is actually best when young and “fresh”, it has a nutty rather than bitter taste, the larger and longer the leaves are the more it becomes bitter. I do not know if it is one of the plants like cilantro that some people simply find terribly bitter and soapy or not…
