This is an intriguing alternative to standard pesto; the secret ingredient is arugula, also know as rocket, which adds extra bite. Pesto loses some of its magic if it is turned into a puree, so be sure to keep the texture chunky. Recipe from Raw Food Celebrations: Party Menus for Every Occasion!  by Nomi Shannon and Sheryl Duruz.
Serves: 8 to 10
Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process until well mixed but still chunky.
Note: if you are making the pesto ahead of time, sprinkle a bit of lemon juice or extra-virgin olive oil on the surface to keep the color from darkening.
