I must say, when it comes to nuts, pistachios rank near the top in my list of favorites. When I saw that February 26th is National Pistachio Day, it inspired me to do something… Like eat pistachios!
As much as I like them, I didn’t want to simply sit around popping pistachios into my mouth all day. I figured I would look for something I could make with these little, green nuts. I must say, I wasn’t disappointed!
I didn’t think there would be a ton of recipes to choose from, but I actually ended up limiting this list. I figured a list of 26 would be perfect, considering this special day falls on the 26th. I came across so many great recipes, I am having a hard time trying to decide which one(s) to try.
