Pistachios are tasty and nutritious nuts used often in Italian and in particular, Sicilian dishes. They are also often eaten as a snack and used in ice creams, confections, baked goods and other sweets. I really love the Sicilian Bronte pistachios when available.
Try using pistachios to make a pesto or add them to salads, meat or fish dishes for some extra flavor and crunch. I like to add crushed pistachios to breadcrumbs and coat chicken breasts with them as well.
