National Pistachio Day

February 26 is National Pistachio Day!

Native to the Middle East, the Pistachio Tree produces bunches of fruit whose seeds are the pistachio nut. According to some sources, people have eaten pistachios for over 9,000 years!

Pistachios are antioxidant-rich and are great sources of fiber, copper, manganese, and vitamin B6. Celebrate National Pistachio Day by eating a special dish that contains the nut, or eating them out of the shell salted and roasted.

Here are some great pistachio recipes!
