  1. Looks delicious! Did you cook the flat bread with the arugula, or toss it on at the end? Gremlin will have to try this! It would be good on the grill too! Cheers to long summer days and sangria!!


      1. Duuuude. I was going to look for something online, but when I saw yours I had to give a chance and now that you said it’s a family recipe and it’s from Spain. It’s on.


Let it all hang out...
