A chutney dressing sounds exotic, but also time-consuming to make. Not so! We used bottled mango chutney for a flavourful dressing base. Tangy, jarred pickled beets go well with the slightly sweet dressing over mesclun greens
A day before serving, make dressing and slice beets. Cover and refrigerate both overnight. Toast pine nuts. Just before serving, slice pear and toss salad.
Toasted pine nuts
Place nuts in an ungreased frying pan over medium heat. Stir often until fragrant and lightly toasted, 4 to 6 minutes.
