Wasabi arugula? Can it get any spicier? When I saw a small bag of this salad in the supermarket, my tongue longed for another challenge. Can I handle this? How many tears will break out of my eyes? Is it just as good as my newfound love for hot sauce?
Well, my dearest readers, as for a good cry, you should not use the wasabi arugula. No one will believe you when you say: “Oh no, I didn’t cry because you just called me a “stupid blonde airhead”, it was just the wasabi arugula.” But when you want to use it in a salad, to spice things up and get out of the ordinary: Go for it!
In this challenging salad I used it with some fresh ingredients to balance the peppery taste of the arugula. Arugula is also known as “rocket salad” and “rucola”, the poor thing is a leafy green vegetable with a multiple personality disorder.
For 2 dare devils use:
- 1 bag (40 grams) of Wasabi Arugula (For my Dutch readers I found it in the Albert Heijn, they first called it “Wasabi Rucola”, now it is “Pittige Rucola”)
- 2 cups of chopped watermelon
- 1 sliced avocado
- 50 grams of crumbled feta cheese
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Some dried chili pepper if you dare
Did you survive the challenge?
