Just for curiosity, I tried and did the exact recipe of Chicken-Pistachio Salad from South Beach Diet specially the dressing, I like it! The dressing is easy to do, just mix all the ingredients needed and blend it, that's it. But the chicken mixture, it took me a long time to prepare. First, I don't have ground pistachio nuts, so I have to shell manually, then blended it in a blender to become powder. Nevertheless, it's worth. It's good
