Arugula Pesto

Pesto is typically made with Sweet Basil but if you are looking for something different try this Arugula Pesto.


2 cups arugula

1/2 cup basil leaves

2 cloves garlic, peeled

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/2 cup toasted walnuts

1/2 cup EVOO, more if needed

How to Make It

Put all of the ingredients except the oil in a food processor and process adding the oil slowly while the processor is running. It will make a thick paste.

Serve with chips, veggies or as a spread for your sandwich.
