Mustard Green Spring Harvest

These mustard greens were planted last fall. I overwintered them by covering the hoops with Agribon, a frost fabric and 6 mil plastic. Yesterday I uncovered them and got the best Easter present ever!

Mustard Green Pesto 
Recipe from Bon Appetit

1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup pecans
2 garlic cloves, peeled, quartered
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese 
3 cups (loosely packed) coarsely chopped mustard greens

How to:

Blend 1/2 cup oil, pecans, and garlic in processor until finely chopped. Add vinegar, then Parmesan; process to blend. Add mustard greens alternately with remaining 1/3 cup oil in 2 additions each; puree until almost smooth. Season pesto with salt and pepper. Transfer to small bowl.
