Homemade Pistachio Salt

This salt is not only beautiful to look at, but it’s delicious on a piece of salmon, grilled chicken, or even sprinkled on a salad. The key is to use the best flaky salt you possibly can, and of course, using American-grown pistachios. Package this salt-blend into waxed paper envelopes or small jars and it makes the perfect edible gift!
