Place rocket and salt in a liquidiser. Add some oil and grind to a thick, coarse paste. You will have to stop the liquidiser, add more oil and stir, a few times.

Add other ingredients and grind a little bit more, just enough to cut the nuts and garlic into small pieces. Store in refrigerator.

Serve tossed with freshly made pasta in a bowl. Eat within two days. Can be spread on bread.

NOTE: When picking rocket/arugula salad (eruca sativa), do not pick groundsel (senecio vulgaris) which is poisonous.
