Citrus State Of Mind

This is the time of year when Spring 
feels so close -albeit, for some closer
than others, but whether you are East or West 
of the Rockies, there is nothing like 
the scent and taste of lemons
to bring in sunshine and warm the palatte,
the soul.
Between foresight and luck, we have
been blessed with lemons and arugula almost year round here.
When I saw this recipe. I knew it was a must share-
all of the ingredients are easily had, regardless of 
where you live or the state of your garden.
