Rocket pesto (for crab etc.)

This week I made a rocket sauce with vinegar and oil, a bit like a pesto, then served it in a green moat around a pile of freshly picked white crab flesh. Stuff a handful of each in the food processor and whizz in enough oil to make a thinnish sauce. Sharpen it up with white-wine vinegar or a squeeze of lemon juice. The faint bitterness of the dressing that comes from the rocket leaves is just what the sweet white crabmeat needs.
