Today is National Pistachio Day! The pistachio is an amazingly versatile nut.

It can be used in baking, ice cream, or eaten whole.

The nuts are also a good source of protein, fiber, and certain vitamins and minerals.

In the Middle East they call them "smiling nuts" because when the nuts are ripe their shells split open and look like a grin.
