Greek Pistachios and Pine Nuts

Vicki Butts (lazyme)


The ingredients in these nuts, as well as the nuts themselves, are customarily found in many Greek dishes. They are best paired with a big hunk of feta cheese, marinated olives and figs (either fresh or dried will do).

They would be good sprinkled over a Greek salad.
