Keep roots attached until ready to use. Arugula prefers dry conditions, so wrap it in a paper towel or dry cloth and place it in plastic in your crisper. Moisture causes rapid deterioration.
Preparation Tip: Arugula can be sandy, so it's best to wash it several times. Commonly used as an herb, in salads or lightly steamed for those who enjoy a milder taste.
