A jewel-like deep green color and a rich pistachio flavor makes this oil a stunning garnish for almost any dish. But since it’s not as delicate as most other nuts oils, pistachio oil also lends itself to both baking and sauteing. Bonus: It’s also adept at lowering cholesterol and, according to a recent report, lowering risk of heart disease.
Taste: Rich pistachio flavor.
Uses: Drizzle it over grilled fish, mashed potatoes, salads or steamed veggies.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark cabinet. Refrigerate after opening.
Recipe: Pistachio Rice
