Raw Pistachio Nut without the shell. The kernels are pink and green on the outside and creamy on the inside. Pistachios can be used in recipes as a replacement for pecans and pine nuts for a different taste. You can toss them through a salad or pasta dish. They make a great pesto or a nutritious snack. Some of the most creative and delicious uses of the pistachio come to us from Italy, where it is often included in desserts such as biscotti and gelato.
