Adapted from "How Sweet Eats"


Step 1. 

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add Fustini's Chipotle olive oil. Add the ground beef, garlic cloves, salt and pepper. Cook until browned, stirring over and breaking the pieces into crumbles, for about 6 to 8 minutes.  Mix in bacon and stir until heated through. Turn off the heat, drizzle with Fustini's Vinoso to delgaze the pan and sprinkle about 2 ounces of cheese over the beef so it slightly melts.

Step 2. 

Chop up the lettuce into bite size pieces. Add the meat mixture, tomatoes, dill pickles and the diced onion. Add the remaining shredded cheese. Toss the salad well, drizzle on the dressing and serve!

Step 3.  Pickle Vinaigrette

In a bowl, whisk together the pickles, pickle juice, shallot, garlic, mustard and honey. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and whisk until the mixture comes together. While whisking, stream in the olive oil until the dressing emulsifies.
