Pistachio Salsa Verde with Pomegranate Seeds

Updated: Apr 11, 2023

A juicy bold way to elevate a simple dish into something worth talking about.


Pistachio Salsa Verde with Pomegranate Seeds

I've made this salsa verde numerous times and have probably served it with a different dish each time. It is extremely versatile and easily elevates a simple dish into something memorable. See some example ideas below.


You can also choose to make this salsa verde with toasted almonds or hazelnuts instead of pistachios and don't fret when pomegranates go out of season, just leave it out. You will still be left with a flavorful bright salsa to spoon over your veggies, chicken or steak!


Pistachio Salsa Verde Recipe

Yield: about 2 cups


Ingredients:

1/2 cup pistachios, toasted

1/4 cup pomegranate seeds

2 TBSP Shallots, brunoise

1 garlic cloves, microplaned / minced -- about 1/2 teaspoon
