This looks very interesting. Husband LOVES pistachios (in fact, I gave him about 10 pounds of them for Xmas - lol), but doesn't care much for beets. This just might win him over.

Breezy, where did you buy the 10 pounds of pistachios? Online?

Turkish, California or other?

P.S. Sorry to stray off your recipe, Sass! It sounds great and different, and I love the ingredients so may be making it!

I bought them at Costco - have been getting them there for years now. Quality is excellent. I bought a large reclosable "presentation" jar of them, then several large "refill" bags, including a couple of bags of "salt & black pepper" flavor, which are really tasty.
