Arugula is a tender green in the brassica or cruciferous family. Its relatives include broccoli, cabbage, Brussels spouts, kale and cauliflower. This group of vegetables is celebrated for their low-calorie, high-nutrient content. Arugula is often used in salads to add a bit of tangy flavor and is a favorite in Mediterranean cooking.
