DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place a baking rack on a sheet pan and lay the bacon slices on the rack. Roast the bacon for about 20 minutes, until nicely browned. Allow to cool.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the arugula, apple, walnuts, cranberries, and blue cheese.
  • For the dressing, whisk together the vinegar, orange zest, orange juice, mustard, maple syrup, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and the pepper in a bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil.
  • Chop the bacon in large pieces and add it to the salad. Toss the salad with just enough dressing to moisten. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and toss well. Serve immediately.
  • NOTE: to toast walnuts do so in a dry saute pan over medium-low heat for 4-5 minutes tossing frequently until lightly browned.
