3 Pistachio Recipes For a Healthy Dinner at Home with Your Squad

By Gracie Carroll

3 pistachio recipes - beet salad with ginger dressing, avocado and pistachios recipe

Whether the guest list is big or small, there’s nothing I love more than hosting my friends and family in my home. Of course, being the foodie that I am, having a great menu is always an important part of the planning. However, I often have to remind myself that not every meal has to be an extravagant ordeal that involves blood, sweat and a lot of tears on my part, in fact, simple meals that are far less stressful to make can be just as delightful for everyone.

With the lovely spring weather on its way, I’ve been so inspired to create light and colourful dishes that reflect the bright weather to come after a dark winter. Working in partnership with Wonderful Pistachios I’ve created 3 easy and delicious pistachio recipes for a healthy dinner at home for you to enjoy with your #squad.

To be honest, I’ve always loved the yummy (and addictive!) taste of pistachios, not to mention the health benefits of this all-natural snack, but, I’ve rarely used it as an ingredient for cooking. Creating a meal with Wonderful Pistachios was such a fun challenge and I was surprised to find that pistachios can be a very versatile ingredient that not only adds great flavour but a fabulous vibrant colour to your meal.

If you’re interested in trying out some pistachio recipes too, here are 3 easy recipes that will help you create a complete meal for you and your guests in no time. The best part? All you need is one bag of Roasted Unsalted Pistachios from Wonderful Pistachios to get you through all 3 dishes!
