  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon chopped shallot
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

For the stacks:

Instructions

For the tomato vinaigrette:

  2. Blend until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl.

For the stacks:

  1. Heat a grill to medium heat (about 400 degrees).
  2. Slice potatoes into 1/3-inch rounds. Cook potato slices in salted water until just tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. Do not over-cook or they will fall apart.

  4. Grill potato slices until browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
  5. Transfer potatoes to a cooling rack. Drizzle potatoes with vinaigrette.
  6. Build the stack starting with a potato slice, then 2 pieces of lettuce, potato slice, tomato slice, potato slice, 2 pieces of bacon, and potato slice on top.
  7. Insert a skewer in the center of the stack to hold it together.
  8. Repeat with remaining ingredients (except vinaigrette).
  9. Drizzle finished stacks with vinaigrette. Serve immediately with vinaigrette on the side.
