Buttery Bacon Pea Sprout Salad

This salad is very flavorful and can be a main or side dish.

1 head butter lettuce
1/2 lb. bacon cut into small pieces
1 c. pea sprouts
1 tomato, cut into bite sized pieces
3-4 slices provolone cheese (this is one time that splurging on the imported kind is worth it)
Kosher salt
freshly ground pepper

Cook the bacon pieces until crispy, drain on paper towel. While the bacon is cooling wash and tear lettuce into bite sized pieces. Dry with paper towels or in a salad spinner. Layer lettuce, bacon, tomatoes, cheese and sprouts. Top with salt and pepper. I served this with a drizzle of olive oil for dressing.
