Chicken Apple Bacon Walnut Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Chicken Apple Bacon Walnut Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Meal


  • Cusine



1 3/4 lbs cooked chicken breasts

8 slices bacon

3 medium apples

3/4 cup chopped

7 - 9 oz spring mix & spinach lettuce blend

6 oz crumbled feta

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

3 1/2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 1/2 Tbsp honey

2 tsp dijon mustard

2 Tbsp finely chopped shallot

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Layer all salad ingredients into individual salad bowls or over plates. Serve drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette. For the balsamic vinaigrette: Add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, dijon mustard, and finely diced shallot to a blender. Season with salt and pepper to taste and blend mixture until well emulsified and thickened slightly. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container. *To cook the chicken I like this recipe from The Kitchn - only I cooked mine longer as I had thick chicken breasts. I also omitted the optional herbs and used a little garlic powder instead.
