- In a bowl, whisk together mustard, lemon juice, dill, sugar, salt and pepper. Whisk in olive oil until well combined. Set aside.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon, turning occasionally, until crispy — about 8 minutes. Use tongs to transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate; let cool and crumble.
- Drain all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the bacon fat from skillet and cook shrimp until golden and cooked through — about 2 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and let cool.
- Arrange the shrimp in one section of a large platter. Do the same with the tomatoes, avocado, red onion, lettuce, crumbled bacon and cheese. Serve with dressing on the side.
