Spicy and tart with the soft texture of young greens, this is the taste of early spring. Arugula flowers open when the plant is going to seed. At this stage, we move from the bottom of the plant to the tops. The leaves become tougher and bold, but the blooms are perfect balance of both nutty and spicy. Enjoy it in combination with local tangerines, chevre and a little dash of Ojai olive oil and balsamic dressing.
