Arugula Recipes

Lots of arugula in this weeks box. Make some pesto!

Arugula Pesto
The idea for this recipe comes to us from Gina Caywood, long-time beachgreens customer, and co-owner of Cross Fit Long Beach  She says its great on top of burgers, and I also think it would make a terrific dip for Holiday gatherings.

Makes: ½ cup
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

1 bunch arugula, rough chopped
¼ cup walnuts, toasted
2 cloves garlic
¼ cup Parmesan Cheese
¼ cup olive oil
Salt and pepper

Throw everything besides olive oil in food processor.  Process while adding olive oil, until desired consistency is reached.  You may also add some lemon zest or lemon juice for extra brightness.  Season with salt and pepper.
