How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to 300° to 350° (medium) heat. Cook first 3 ingredients in a 2-qt. heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, 2 minutes.

Step 2

Cut each onion crosswise into 3 slices. Grill onion slices, covered with grill lid, 32 minutes, turning every 4 minutes and basting with bourbon mixture with each turn during last half of grill time. Remove from grill, wrap in aluminum foil, and let stand 10 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, whisk together vinegar and next 5 ingredients. Add oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly until smooth. Whisk before serving.

Step 4

Sprinkle tomato slices with salt and pepper to taste. Place 1 tomato slice (or stack 2) on each of 4 plates. Top each with 1 onion slice, and spread with 1 1/2 tsp. goat cheese. Top each stack with 2 basil leaves and 1 bacon piece. Repeat layers once. Top with remaining onions. Spoon 1 Tbsp. vinaigrette over each stack.

Step 5

Toss greens with 3 Tbsp. vinaigrette, and serve immediately with Sweet Onion Stacks and remaining vinaigrette.
