  1. To prepare blue cheese ice cream , combine the blue cheese, vanilla ice cream, brown sugar, and hot sauce together in a medium bowl. Freeze for at least 2 hours or until frozen. Slice a1/4-inch off the bottom of each head of lettuce to allow it to sit flat like a bowl. Slice 1-inch off the top and remove the middle leaves of lettuce to create a bowl. Fill each 'bowl' with the blue cheese ice cream, diced tomatoes, and one strip of fried bacon. Whisk the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and cracked black pepper, to taste, in a small bowl and drizzle the dressing over the salad.
