It’s all topped with crunchy walnuts for a bowlful of delicious textural and flavor contrasts that makes a fresh, light dinner idea you’re going to want to make again and again.

• Wash and dry produce. • Halve, core, and thinly slice apple.
• Heat a medium dry nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Using kitchen shears, cut bacon* into bite-size pieces directly into pan. Cook, stirring occasionally and adjusting heat if browning too quickly, until crispy, 4-6 minutes. • Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.
• In a large bowl, combine spinach, apple, bacon, half the cheddar, half the cranberries, and half the walnuts. • Add as much dressing as you like and toss to combine. Season lightly with salt and pepper to taste.
• Divide salad between shallow bowls. Top with remaining cheddar, remaining cranberries, and remaining walnuts. Serve.
Bacon is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 145°.
