Our take on the classic Waldorf salad features traditional ingredients like walnuts, celery, seasonal fruit, and bites of tender chicken—plus a flavorful twist on the typical creamy dressing thanks to a tangy-sweet combo of whole grain mustard, fromage blanc, and honey.

Prepare the ingredients & marinate the grapes:
1 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the grapes:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Roughly chop the lettuce. Core and medium dice the apple. Halve the celery stalks lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Combine in a large bowl. Roughly chop the walnuts. Remove and discard any stems from the grapes; halve the grapes. Place in a bowl; add the vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. 

Cook the chicken:
2 Cook the chicken:

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to thoroughly coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the demi-glace. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the chicken is browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat.

3 Make the dressing:
