Day 8: Arugula/Rocket/Arugula/Rocket

With one American and one Brit in the same kitchen, there are inevitably going to be some disputes over what things are called.  So, whether this to you would be:

Rocket Salad with Beets and Goat Cheese

or

Arugula Salad with Beets and Goat Cheese

…it’s pretty tasty either way.

In all fairness the recipe we followed from Simply Recipes states arugula, and I think it’s more fun than rocket.  Arugula it is.
(One friend that this informaion was relayed to replied with “Rocket as in… the shitty leaf?” I guess this salad wouldn’t be such a winner with her)

We nommed ours with some mac and cheese.

My only change to it would have been less of the beet vinegar, but I’m not even sure how much we put in to begin with .  Sticking to recipes?  Haha….
