  4. Add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes or until fragrant.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar, Dijon mustard, and oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. In another bowl, combine frisée and 1/3 of the dressing, then toss to coat.
  7. Add lentils, onion mixture, and bacon to bowl with remaining salad dressing; toss to coat.
  8. Divide frisée among plates and serve with salad.
