This wonderful 5-ingredient recipe from Alice Tremont in Rochester Hills, Michigan is easy and elegant…with lots of blue cheese flavor and crunch from the pine nuts. Topped with raspberry vinaigrette dressing, it couldn’t be much easier to toss together on a busy weeknight or much nicer to serve company. Alice often serves it on special occasions and says it always gets compliments, and that adding grilled chicken breast turns it into a fuss-free and fabulous main dish.
