Try this delicious arugula pesto recipe for a unique way to enjoy these healthy greens.
Arugula is one of the greens I get regularly from my farm share. It has a strong flavor, so I typically mix it with milder lettuce for a salad.
Another great use for arugula is pesto because the garlic, nuts, and salt mellow the bitterness of the arugula. Its bright color makes this an appealing appetizer.
Pesto can be frozen, so this is a great recipe for those times when we’ve had enough arugula for a while. You can serve it on crackers, mix it with pasta, or spread it on a sandwich for a burst of extra flavor.
