i love them in salads...never had them cooked, i don't think. how would you prepare them warm? i love frisee in a bacon salad with a poached egg. SO good and the grease really cuts through the bitterness

I love them ... especially in a spring mix. But I voted sometimes, because sometimes you want just a nice salad w/o the bitter.

Too bitter for my liking. I like everything sweet.

I bloody hate arugula salads. If it's mixed with other greens, I can eat it, but just an arugula salad? No way. And frissee just annoys me. (Wow. Didn't realize I felt so strongly about the :-) )

They can be great when paired w/ the right things...but I've never been to fond of frisee.

I don't know what it is about the bitterness but I love it. I love bitter beers too.

Here in Europe, Arugula is a year-round staple, couldn't live without it!

Yeah, I love greens but definitely don't see the attraction to the bitterness... but then again some of the beer my bf drinks tastes bitter as hell (at least to me), and i'm like "YUCK how could you drink this and enjoy it?!" I guess it's personal preference... but ew!

I'll eat them (usually) if they're given to me in a retaurant or dinner party, but I hate them and would never voluntarily put them in a salad. Though, that said, I'd never voluntarily put anything but (non-Iceberg) lettuce and a decent vinaigrette on a salad, so that doesn't really say much. I like my salads boring.

I love them in salads, but I have never tried cooking them. I think I'll look for recipe and make them for dinner tonight.

I love arugula mixed with other greens. We always have tons of it growing in our garden in the Spring.

I think they are a nice addition mixed in, but if I accidentally get one of those puppies on their own I'm tempted to spit it out. Blech.

I like arugula, but I've never had Frisee. But I usually do have them in a mix of some kind.

no I cannot stand them, YUCK! If there is a small amount in the spring mix I can handle it but I usually take them out.

They're OK in a mix, but I don't buy them specifically.
