The arugula leaves looked so fresh that I bought 2 packets to prepare salad.  Threw in a packet of smoked salmon and a packet of cubed bacon when walked past the gourmet counter.  A salad of crispy bacon together with smoked salmon and arugula leaves plus some mini tomatoes add color to the dinner table. 

Deep fry the bacon and garlic till crispy and mix together with salmon, arugula leaves and tomatoes.  Saute the mixture lightly with olive oil and a teaspoon of Japanese yuzu soya sauce.  Sprinkle a bite of sea salt over the salad.

Arugula is leafy green herb of the mustard family.  Also known as rocket leave ad its flavor is hot and peppery.  It is low in calories and is a good source of vitamins of A and C, folate, calcium and magnesium.
