Sweet And Sour Pistachio Meatballs…

Happy Monday.

Are you looking for something tasty for dinner?

Meatballs anyone?

Today I am sharing some fun and tasty Sweet and Sour Pistachio Meatballs today from American Pistachios.

I love pistachios!! So tasty!!

These meatballs are a little different to traditional meatballs as they are made with Turkey mince.

I can image all the ingredients will work together perfectly too.

How tasty!?
