Chive Mayo:

1/4 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons plain yogurt 

1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice 

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

BLT Salad Bites:

3 ounces pancetta, cut into small dice

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved 

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 

1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

1 teaspoon red wine vinegar 

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 

2 to 3 heads Little Gem lettuce (about 16 leaves) 

1/4 cup grated Parmesan


  1. For the chive mayo: Mix together the mayonnaise, yogurt, chives, lemon juice, mustard, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl; set aside. (The mayo can be made a day ahead and refrigerated.)
  2. For the BLT salad bites: Saute the pancetta in a skillet over medium-high heat until crispy, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Combine the tomatoes, olive oil, chives, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Arrange the larger lettuce leaves on a serving platter. Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons of chive mayo onto the center of each leaf. Top with about 1 tablespoon of the tomato mixture and some crispy pancetta. Sprinkle with the Parmesan.
