I developed this recipe a number of years ago when I was looking for vegetable options for party finger foods and hors d’eurves. So many finger foods are heavy with lots of bread, cheese and meat. These are light and refreshing, and hold up well to sitting out. Nothing to wilt here. The citrus provides a sweet and tangy zing. The pomegranate seeds provide a tart burst. The celery and endive provide and nice crisp crunch. The cranberries provide a chewy sweetness. Finally the pistachios add a bit of umami and even more texture. Salad does not have to be boring and eaten with a fork.

Here’s another pesto pasta, but this time using pistachios in place of pine nuts.  As I’ve mentioned in the past, pesto is great because it’s a flavorful sauce that is quick to make.  This pesto would also be delicious spread on a flatbread.
