Try It: Juno’s Wild Arugula Salad


Friendly little Juno’s Kitchen & Delicatessen in East Sacramento never fails to impress me. The teeny space cranks out a number of creative, spectacular sandwiches (don’t miss the panko-crusted eggplant sandwich, a nosh I’ve been mildly obsessed with for a couple of years) – and the sandwiches are mostly what the shop is known for. But I’m also a fan of their greens, and recently I was wowed by the wild arugula salad. Artfully garnished with thin-sliced Manchego cheese, jamón serrano (a dry-cured Spanish ham) and sweet, earthy red beets, the salad’s hefty pile of pungent wild arugula greens were dressed with a sharply pleasing, palate-reviving sherry vinaigrette. Light but filling, this lovely dish is a great alternative to a lunchtime Cobb or Caesar.
