Perfect Lox and Bagel Platter
What do you recall as your favorite platter? For me, this was a weekend treat that I used to order when I was a kid with my grandfather and looked forward to all week. He usually bought me half pound of lox wings to go whenever he bought his sliced pumpernickle during the week and a couple of salt bagels. It's hard to find a good bagel anymore and the few remaining real delis are quite a few miles away. Still there is no loss of places that still make a lox platter using lousy bagels and that flavorless, pasty, pink mush that passes as nova nowadays around here.
Of days past, that platter usually had enough to make the bagel and order another bagel to make another and still have veggies and garnish left over in most good delis.
