The Canlis Restaurant is in Seattle. To coddle an egg, bring a small saucepan of water to a simmer. Then simmer the egg for exactly 1 minute. Coddled eggs make the dressing very creamy.

I loved the salad ingredient mix - that was great. The dressing reminded me of something that I have had on a salad in greek restaurants. I think thought that next time I will skip the mint.
