Sun-Dried Tomato and Arugula Tartines

"Peppery arugula is like a spice itself," says French chef and instructor Emmanuel Tessier of La Cuisine Corsaire in Cancale, France. Toasting the arugula under cheese in these sandwiches slightly wilts the leaves for a texture that's a cross between cooked spinach and crunchy lettuce.
