Recipe by carole in orlando

This is from The Lindsay Olive Cookbook, with a few changes. This is an excellent sidedish for dinner, or a maindish for lunch. It has a blend of flavors that is unique and very pleasant.

Carole, this is so delicious and very easy to make. I loved the combination of flavors and textures in this dish. I made a few modifications... I didn't have any walnuts at home so I substituted some sauteed pine nuts instead. I also added some roasted carrots and garlic to the recipe. Next time I'll add some roasted pumpkin as well. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!
