Arugula isn't just fancy lettuce—it's a flavorful, nutritious vegetable that has a long list of health benefits. It's low in calories, high in folic acid, vitamins A, C, and K, and minerals like iron and copper. Its peppery flavor also provides a unique twist. Here's my favorite way to make arugula even yummier!


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 10 baby carrots, chopped
  • ½ cup, chopped red cabbage
  • 1 cup arugula, raw
  • 8 oz chicken breast, cut into cubes
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
