This appetizer is great with the West Wind Wines Sangiovese, but you can try it with your favorite red wine or beverage! The Arugula pesto is amazing on pasta or as a sandwich spread. Create something of your own with it! xo
1 – 6 ounce Bag Arugula or Rocket
1 T Olive Oil
1 T Lemon Juice & Zest
Salt & Pepper to taste
1/2 C Gorgonzola, Crumbled
1 Bag Salted Pita Chips
1 Small Bag Candied Pecans, Available at Trader Joe’s, Chopped (purchased), I chop them by hitting the bag with a rolling pin, it works well and doesn’t make a mess!
In the bowl of a food processor place arugula, olive oil, lemon juice & zest, salt & pepper. Process until it looks like pesto. Place in a bowl.
Place a dollop of the arugula pesto on a pita chip, top with Gorgonzola and sprinkle with candied spicy pecans, serve.
