If you're not serving the salad immediately, hold off on slicing the apple and tossing everything with the vinaigrette until just before serving.
For the vinaigrette, cook bacon in a nonstick skillet until crisp. Transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate. Add shallots to the drippings and sauté until soft, about 2 minutes. Stir in juice concentrate, vinegar, Dijon, and cinnamon; simmer 1 minute.
Off heat, whisk in oil. Season vinaigrette with salt and pepper; cool to room temperature.
For the salad, toss together romaine, mesclun greens, apple, onion, peanuts, and bacon. Toss salad with vinaigrette and serve immediately.
