I have eaten several leaves of Arabidopsis No-0. It tasted very good and it
reminded me of green mustard, but milder and with a little hint of peppery
flavors (the glucosinolates). I meant to grow a bunch for salad, but I never got
around to it. If anybody is interested, I recommend seeding it as a lawn and
harvesting the rosette leaves with a knife (i.e. mowing the lawn) before the
plants bolts. Dressing: olive oil and vinegar (or lemon). It should go well with
chicken or fish. Wine: anything dry and not too heavy. 
Buon appetito,
