Agrodolce is the term for any Italian sweet-and-sour sauce made with vinegar and sugar. This superchunky version with golden raisins, red grapes and toasted pine nuts is more like a compote and is fantastic with the spice-roasted chicken.    Delicious, Quick Side Dishes  

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a bowl, cover the raisins with the warm water and let stand until plumped, about 10 minutes. Drain.

Step 2    

In a small skillet, toast the pine nuts over moderate heat until fragrant and golden brown, about 4 minutes. Let cool.

Step 3    

In a medium saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, red onion and fennel seeds. Simmer over moderate heat until thickened, about 25 minutes. Pour into a heatproof bowl and let cool to room temperature.

Step 4    

Stir the raisins, pine nuts, grapes and olive oil into the syrup. Season lightly with salt and serve.
