Recipe by Dragonfly AZ
READY IN: 20mins




  • Cut bacon into small pieces.
  • Add 1 Tbs olive oil to a large skillet on med-high heat.
  • Add bacon to the pan. When it has started to cook and render down, add onions.
  • Cook, stirring frequently until onions and bacon are done. Be careful not to burn.
  • Carefully pour the vinegar into the pan and stir to deglaze the pan. Simmer for a few minutes, or until liquid is decreased by half. Turn heat down to lowest possible setting, just to keep warm.
  • Cut lettuce in half lengthwise. Brush cut side with remaining olive oil (or hit it with a spray from a can).
  • Place lettuce, cut side down on a hot grill for 2-3 minutes, just long enough to char it lightly.
  • Remove from grill, and place cut side up on serving platter. Spoon the bacon mixture over the lettuce, dividing it evenly.
  • Sprinkle blue cheese over lettuce.
  • Add the black pepper to taste.
  • Serve immediately.
