I don't remember what book I got this from but it is a big hit at potlucks. People always ask for the recipe. The orginal recipe calls for pears, but sometimes I use green apples. I save the oil that I toast the pine nuts in and use it in the vinaigrette. Also, I often use a bag of spinach with carrots. If I am short on time, I buy precooked chicken breasts or elimate it altogether.
