Author Notes: What to do with half a container of arugula??? Make some delicious spring pesto!

This is amazing smeared on some garlic toast, dolloped into a soup, spread in homemade pizza, great on grilled fish and vegetables and of course on pasta, it's my go to for cold pasta salad.

It also freezes really well in a container or ice cube tray for single servings.

  • 3 cups Arugula
  • 1/3 cup Walnuts
  • Zest of 1 lemon
