Ingredients

  • 2 bacon slices
  • 1 head escarole
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup dried figs, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (about 4 ounces)

Preparation

  1. 1. Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan and crumble. Set aside, and reserve 1 teaspoon drippings in pan.
  2. 2. Place escarole top-down in pan, and press down gently. Cook over medium-high heat for 3 minutes or until wilted. Flip, and cook 1 minute. Remove to cutting board; coarsely chop escarole, discarding core, and transfer to a large bowl.
  3. 3. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat; add minced shallots, and cook 3 minutes or until golden brown. Add balsamic vinegar, orange juice, dried figs, and sugar to pan; stir to dissolve sugar and thicken. Pour dressing and figs over escarole, tossing gently to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Mound on top of chicken; top with cheese and bacon.
