Celebrate autumn's apple season with this delicious and satisfying salad. We call for the thick-sliced smoked chicken now available in the meat department of supermarkets. Of course, you can always use smoked turkey from the deli counter instead. If you like a more pronounced sweet-and-sour flavor, use another teaspoon of vinegar. Plus: More Chicken Recipes and Tips

How to Make It

Step 1    

Heat the oven to 350°. Toast the walnuts until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Let cool.

Step 2    

In a large frying pan, cook the bacon until it is crisp. Drain the bacon on paper towels and then crumble it.

Step 3    

In a small glass or stainless-steel bowl, whisk the vinegar with the mustard, salt, and pepper. Whisk in the oil.

Step 4    

In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the dressing with the chicken. Let sit for about 5 minutes so that the chicken absorbs the dressing. Add the walnuts, bacon, spinach, onion, apple, and the remaining dressing and toss.
