Arugula & Marcona Almond Pesto


This is a great version of pesto.

Use fresh arugula instead of basil, and Marcona almonds from Spain instead of plain walnuts.

Spread this on everything.....focaccia, fish and sandwiches.

This is my new favorite.

Arugula Marcona Almond Pesto:

2 cups of wild arugula (rocket)
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup of Marcona almonds
zest of a lemon
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
sea salt & black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil

Whiz all ingredients together in a food processor until desired consistency.


I'm slathering it all over my body.

Keep covered in fridge.

Lasted me a whole week.

All over my body? Will it keep mosquitoes away? Dying from multiple bites - contemplating running screaming into street!!!!

It does sound delicious...

I can't wait to try this! Marcona almonds are my favorite when I've had enough snacking on walnuts and almonds.
