Transfer to a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Add the parsley, arugula, lemon juice, capers, crushed red pepper and 2 tablespoons of water and pulse to a paste. With the machine on, gradually add the 3/4 cup of olive oil until incorporated. Transfer the salsa to a bowl; season generously with salt and black pepper.
