Tangy Chicken, Apple, Walnut, and Bacon Salad

Salads rock!!! They are simple . . . make great use of leftovers . . . can be altered to fit current cravings (and picky eaters) and pump your bod full of energy without making you feel like a soggy beanbag . . . I love the dressing for this salad! It can be tweaked left and right to tickle any taste buds!Tangy Apple Cider Dressing
Recipe by: Emily
1/2 cup Mayo
1 tsp Spicy Brown Mustard
2-3 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Honey
1/4 tsp Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

For the salad I simply toasted walnuts, crisped some bacon, chopped an apple and roasted a chicken breast and tossed all the goodies together with the dressing . . . and enjoyed!!! Great summer lunch or dinner!!!

Looks delicious. I will be adding this to my menu. I think my hubby would go for this. His favorite salad was the one you made with candied almonds. Yum Yum Em.

This looks delicious. Love those main dish salads -- you feel so virtuous when you're eating them :) Tonight we had scallops and celery in a Dijon vinaigrette over lettuce from the garden. Yum.
