Canlis Restaurant Salad

2 tomatoes
1 large head Romaine lettuce

cup chopped green onion (scallions)
cup well-done, chopped bacon
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves, or 1 teaspoon dried

cup freshly grated cheese
cup, or to taste, finely chopped fresh mint
teaspoon salt
cup croutons
Dressing
1 coddled egg
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Into a large wooden salad bowl, place cut tomatoes, cut in eighths, and Romaine lettuce, washed, crisped and torn into approximately one-inch-square pieces, chopped scallions, Romano cheese, bacon bits, oregano and mint.
To make Canlis' special dressing: place salt, pepper, lemon juice and coddled egg into a bowl, whip vigorously. Then slowly add olive oil, whipping constantly. Pour dressing over salad and toss thoroughly.
Add croutons and a sprinkle of Romano cheese just prior to serving.

Yield: Serves 4 to 6.
