Peanut Butter, Honey, and Arugula Sandwich

A peanut butter, honey, and arugula sandwich on a white plate.
This peanut butter, honey, and arugula sandwich is a terrific way to showcase a favorite honey—one with enough flavor to stand up to the arugula's bite.

  • Peanut butter (crunchy or creamy, natural or not), to taste
  • 1 slice your favorite bread (toasted or not)
  • Honey to taste
  • Handful fresh arugula* leaves


  • Spread the peanut butter on one slice of the slice of bread and drip, dribble, or drizzle with honey. Top with arugula.


*What can I substitute for arugula?

In a recipe as simple as this, you're not going to want to change up too much but if arugula is the missing element, you might be able to make a quick swap. The best substitutions for peppery and bitter arugula would be either watercress or frisée because of their flavor and size. Otherwise, a little escarole or even baby spinach would be good here.
