1 cup bulgur
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, cut into 1/4-inch dice
3 cups diced cooked skinless, boneless chicken meat from a rotisserie bird
2 scallions, thinly sliced


1. Combine bulgur and broth in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl, fluff with a fork and let stand 15 minutes to cool.

2. Place walnuts in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until toasted and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool.

3. Whisk together vinegar, brown sugar, mustard and 1/4 tsp. salt in a small bowl. Add oil in a slow stream and whisk until emulsified. Add apple and chicken to bowl with bulgur. Pour in dressing and toss to coat. Season with salt, transfer salad to a serving bowl or platter and sprinkle with walnuts and scallions. Serve at room temperature.
