Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound bacon, chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 romaine hearts, halved lengthwise
  • 2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  • Cracked black pepper, for garnish

Preparation

Preheat a grill to high. In a medium skillet, cook the bacon, stirring frequently, over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Lower the heat to low, add 2 tablespoons olive oil and the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the vinegar.

Brush the cut sides of the lettuce halves with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and grill cut side down until seared, about 1 minute. Serve the lettuce cut side up. Top with the bacon dressing, blue cheese and pepper.
