“From Cooking Light August 2008. Coddling the egg makes it creamy but does not heat it to 160 degrees, the temperature required to kill bacteria. Use a pasteurized whole egg if you have safety concerns. If the chicken is already prepared it makes a super quick meal. It took me more time because I was waiting for the ingredients to lose some of the chill of the refrigerator. I made the salad dressing as directed and we thought it had wonderful garlicky flavor and liked that it was not the thick and creamy type of dressing. In step 2 when I added the egg and lemon juice, my dressing did not become "thick". Not sure I understand what the directions mean there. I plated my salads and individually added ingredients and then dressing since I prefer that method.”
