Arugula and Pomegranate Salad

I had the wonderful opportunity to be a guest on “The 504” for a cooking segment about cooking for your boo a.k.a. Valentine’s Day! My inspiration for my arugula and pomegranate salad recipe was to use foods known as aphrodisiacs. That started a wonderful conversation during the show, to say the least. Personally, I believe that food is a natural aphrodisiac especially when it’s good food.

Here’s some information on what makes arugula, pomegranate, and basil aphrodisiacs.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes video from yesterday’s show.
