Unusual fruit flavors are a great way to jazz up everyday salads like this one. Sweet, fresh papaya brings a summery twist to arugula, and a fresh pomegranate vinaigrette ensures that you're getting a good dose of cancer-fighting antioxidants with each bite.

Arugula Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Arugula Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
