If you're looking for something delicious to snack on, or something different to add to a recipe, you should go for nuts — and more specifically, delicious pistachios. Yes, I know, cue all the "that's what she said!" jokes. Nuts is a funny word, I get it. It's fine, we're all allowed to be a little immature sometimes when it comes to sexual innuendos.

But seriously, if you're looking to add more nuts into your diet, today is the day to do it. February 26 is National Pistachio Day, and there was never a better time to eat some delicious pistachio nuts. Pistachios are the best because they're so versatile.

You can basically do whatever you want with them!

These 12 recipes are here to inspire you to start eating more pistachios on this special pistachio holiday. Slightly pricey? Yes, but this salty treat is totally worth it... just let these recipes prove that to you.
