I’ve actually had this recipe for a long time. I cut it out of a cooking light magazine a really long time ago. I pulled it out of my recipe box. Yes an actual box. I hadn’t made it in awhile though! For some reason it. Am our better than I remembered yum!

1 1/4 teaspoons black pepper, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1 (5-ounce) package fresh baby arugula
4 quarts water
