Mizuna with Bacon, Walnuts and Apple

(1 to 2 bacon slices, diced (I used only one, but had to add some additional fat from my bacon fat jar in the fridge)
half a small onion, chopped
3 or 4 small green garlic stalks, white and light green part, sliced like scallions
1 apple, cored and diced
about 2 tbsp. cider vinegar instead of red wine vinegar (enhances the apple-y taste of the dish)
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
about 1/4 C of walnut pieces (or coarsely chopped walnuts)
juice from half a small lemon
1 large bunch mizuna, washed and coarsely chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Cook bacon in skillet over medium heat until mostly browned; add onion and green garlic and continue to cook until bacon is done and onions and garlic are starting to brown as well. Add apples, stir and heat maybe another minute or so (adding more fat or some olive oil, if needed). Add cider vinegar, mustard, and walnuts, stir to distribute mustard. Add lemon juice, then mizuna, sprinkling with salt and pepper to taste. Stir and cook until mizuna is just wilted. Turn off heat and serve.
