Diplotaxis tenuifolia

Also known as Wild Roquette, perennial arugula grows wild all over Europe and Western Asia.  Similar to annual arugula, perennial arugula has a mild taste when leaves are small and in cooler weather, gaining more of a bite when larger and grown in heat.  A short-lived perennial, expect individual plants to live for 2-3 years.  Plants will reseed themselves or you can plant again in from seeds you save yourself!
