Use versatile, heart-healthy pecans for more than just pecan pie. They can add rich flavor and crunch to a variety of recipes
including appetizers, breads, salads, and main dishes.
Beyond Pecan Pie
Pecans are a good source of protein, monounsaturated fat, vitamin E, and fiber. They’re also naturally sodium-free. Pecans
are available all year long, and shelled pecans can be kept in the refrigerator for about nine months and for up to two years
in the freezer. Use these nuts to add both flavor and crunch to salads, appetizers, main dishes, and, of course, desserts
such as pie.
Pear Chutney Bruschetta with Pecans and Blue Cheese
Bring pecans to the appetizer table when you pair sweet-tangy chutney with pungent blue cheese and toasty pecans and serve
on top of toasted baguette slices.
Take a walk on the culinary wild side with this adventurous pizza. Thinly sliced Fuji apples, goat cheese, toasted pecans,
baby arugula, and fresh thyme meld together in a tantalizing blend of flavors for a unique and fresh pizza dinner.
