Wilted Arugula with Pine Nuts and Lemon


  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • Grated zest of 4 lemons
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, cored, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 10 ounces baby arugula, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Pecorino

Be sure to rinse the leaves thoroughly, as they tend to hang onto a lot of grit

Heat oil in a 14-inch skillet over medium heat. Add pine nuts and toast until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add lemon zest and jalapenos, and cook for 1 minute. Add arugula and stir until just wilted, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat and toss with grated cheese. Place on a warmed platter and serve.


Makes 8 to 10 side servings.
