Garlic Mustard Pesto recipe

This is a green we have growing on the farm, Garlic Mustard (aka a noxious weed).  It's fabulous - very, very nutritious, with an awesome mild garlic flavor.  It can be eaten raw on a salad, sauteed, or made into a fabulous pesto.  This is an easy farmer's version of pesto (minus the expensive pine nuts & parmesan cheese sometimes added to regular pesto). 

Garlic Spinach Pesto
1 bunch garlic spinach (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Dash of salt

Place into a food processor or blender, and process until smooth.  Add more olive oil if needed.  That's all there is to it!  It will give you a huge kick of vitamins and nutrients.  It's so beautiful!  Serve with fresh bread dipped into it, or over pasta, or on eggs, or.... you see, the possibilities are endless.
