Flavorful baby arugula is a versatile green to keep on hand and pairs well with salty prosciutto and creamy avocado. Here, it adds a peppery punch to these open-face sandwiches, but it's also as a great substitute for basil in pesto or for spinach in a dip. Crunchy, refreshing, and filling, this sandwich hits all the right flavor profiles and looks great doing so since you're not closing it up with another slice of bread.
