NUTTY-FIGGY PISTACHIO SPORTS SNACKS

Yield: 4 servings, 4 slices each

Ingredients

5 tablespoons Roasted/salted, shelled American pistachios
1¼ cups Dried California figs (moist-style) stemmed
2 teaspoons Grated orange peel

Instructions

Remove 8 whole pistachios, halve them and set aside for garnishing.  Finely chop 2 tablespoons of remaining pistachios in food processor, remove from container and set aside.  Combine remaining pistachios, figs and orange peel in processor, process until mixture forms into ball, less than 1 minute.  Shape into an 8 inch log, then roll in reserved chopped nuts.  Chill until firm, then cut into 16 slices.  Place halved pistachios in center of each.

Note:  If you do not have a food processor, turn figs and all but 8 pistachios onto board and chop together with large knife until fine.  Mix grated orange peel then shape as above.
