Parmigiano Reggiano Chicken Ceasar Cobb Salad

     Never have I ever tasted Parmesan Cheese like I did when the Hubs and I were visiting Parma, Italy.  But lucky for me Whole Foods gets beautiful wheels of Parmesan that has been hand tendered 24 months hailing from the Reggio Emelia county of Parma.  Each round carries proof of its authenticity.  During production, the future rind is impressed with the number of the "caseificio" or cheese house, production date, and pin dots forming the words "Parmigiano Reggiano".  The pin dots guarantee that the cheese was made under regulation of the Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano Reggiano, conforming to its stringent standards of quality.  Every bite confirms the aging process, and I couldn't be happier to take advantage of this fine art~won't you join me!?  :)

Jumbo Egg
1 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup shredded Parmigiano Reggiano

1/2 cup Lemon Juice

1 Tablespoon Anchovy Paste
