  1. To make the carrot and apple relish, coarsely grate the carrots into a bowl. Quarter and core the apples, and grate into the bowl with the carrot. Add the preserved lemons and raisins, and mix together. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Lay the spinach leaves in a large shallow salad bowl, and top with the chicken and pine nuts. When ready to serve, drizzle with the olive oil and lemon juice, and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Serve with the carrot and apple relish.
  • Toast the pine nuts in a small dry frying pan: heat gently for a couple of minutes, tossing frequently, until they turn golden, but watch carefully because they can quickly burn.
