Over Mother’s Day weekend I actually participated in making this snack, while assisting on Lauren’s photoshoot.
It was so easy: toss fresh arugula, pine nuts and olive oil into a Cuisinart and blend. Serve on sliced bread.
It was great to see how simple (and delicious!) it was to make this. I aspire to be the sort of person who will whip up little appetizers for visitors and say, “Oh, this wasn’t any trouble at all. I happened to have some arugula left over from my trip to the farmer’s market.” But not in a little-miss-perfect way. Just in an effortlessly cool kinda way.
But it’s going to take a lot of effort, to get to effortless. One skill down. About a zillion to go.
And I don’t even own a Cuisinart.
