  1. Fry bacon in a cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat until crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Once cool enough to handle, cut into pieces.
  2. Add Boston lettuce to a large bowl. Fan grapefruit slices over top of lettuce. Repeat with avocado slices. Sprinkle over pepita seeds. Sprinkle blueberries and bacon over top. Top with slices of hard-boiled eggs.
