The extra fine leaves from the RucolaCress make it suitable for decorating items with a blunt taste, but it also works well in a salad and in a mashed potato. In case it is cooked, e.g. in a pasta sauce with some ham, cheese, cream and shallots. We recommend that if you use it in cooked dishes, you add it last. Rucola Cress makes a fantastic pasta sauce.
Rucola is not a known allergen, but it does contain the substance that causes an allergic reaction to mustard.
