It’s time for What To Make With What’s On Sale! Today (Friday) only at Safeway, 20 oz bags of Wonderful Pistachios are $5.00 (or less with a coupon!) If you happen to miss out on this deal, don’t worry; Safeway seems to run sales on pistachios fairly frequently.
Pistachios make a fun and healthy snack, but have you considered using pistachios in a recipe? Here are several tasty and creative ideas for using pistachios!
This Pistachio Crusted Chicken is so delicious, you might just add it to your regular menu cycle! In the recipe comments, many reviewers suggest making a raspberry sauce to go with the chicken. You can find a recipe for raspberry sauce here.
Pistachios can be candied just like any other type of nut. This Candied Pistachios recipe is fairly simple and very flavorful. (I prefer to substitute vanilla extract for the almond extract.) Try sprinkling candied pistachios on a green salad, or crush them up and use them as a topping for yogurt or ice cream!
(Speaking of ice cream, this recipe for pistachio ice cream looks amazing!)
For another tasty dessert (or breakfast, or snack), try this Homemade Pistachio Pudding. The first time I made this, I didn’t adjust for high altitude and ended up with a very runny (but yummy!) pudding. On my second attempt, I added two extra tablespoons of cornstarch and it turned out perfectly.
This colorful Cranberry Pistachio Ice Cream Cake looks like a great crowd-pleasing dessert to make for the upcoming holidays.
