Pistachio Pesto for Cranberry Crisps

November 16, 2021

This snack pairing of Cranberry Almond Crisps, goat cheese, and pistachio pesto is perfect for the holiday season. This recipe was inspired by a pesto goat cheese my aunt would serve. I put a twist on the pesto using pistachios and arugula. I think the Cranberry Almond Crisps complement the pesto with the cranberries. If you wanted to make it dairy free I would recommend a cashew cheese like Miyoko's. I hope you enjoy.
