Arugula is my favorite lettuce because of its natural spiciness. It’s perfect for seared salmon salads, and light, sweet vinaigrettes. Arugula is easily transformed into pesto, which can be used on a large variety of sandwiches (paninis especially), chicken, and fish.

Towards the end of summer I usually end up with large amounts of basil- this is also the time of year when my tomatoes ripen and become sweet, and flavorful. One of my favorite meals is homemade toasted bread with basil pesto, and garden tomatoes… don’t forget the salt and pepper!
