Shared Platter.

Dinner for two. 
Wings and Caesar Salad.
This is Moe’s favourite salad. He loves this Caesar Salad.
 I’ve been making him this salad since 1979.
This one sets the standards by which he judges all other Caesars.
Homemade dressing with coddle egg , 
homemade croutons and both Roquefort Cheese and Parmigiano Reggiano.

1 large clove of garlic
1/2 cup olive oil

Add garlic to salad bowl (wooden works best), 
sprinkle with salt and use a fork to crush garlic.

Drizzle in oil a bit at a time, until the oil is absorbed by the egg mixture.
