Ingredients
 
3 slices thick-cut bacon
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons minced garlic, divided
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons lemon juice
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ cup red onion, diced
1 head iceberg lettuce
 
Instructions
 
Add bacon to medium skillet over medium heat. Cook 3 minutes per side until bacon is crisp. Place bacon on a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
 
 
To prepare dressing, combine tahini, 1 tablespoon minced garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil, honey, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons water and sea salt in a small bowl or jar. Whisk to combine and refrigerate.
 
To a small bowl, add 3 tablespoons olive oil and 1 tablespoon garlic. Set aside. Rinse lettuce and pat dry with a clean towel. Cut lettuce head through the core into four equally sized wedges, then remove outermost leaves.
 
Preheat grill to 400°F (204°C). Brush lettuce wedges with olive oil and garlic mixture. Place lettuce cut side down and grill for 2 to 3 minutes, then turn lettuce to grill the other cut side for 2 to 3 minutes.
 
Remove from grill and serve each wedge with 1 tablespoon tahini dressing, and equal amounts crumbled bacon and chopped red onions.
