    Sensational - great fresh flavor. Of course, taking a little extra time to toss and lightly coat each leaf in a big salad bowl before plating makes a big difference too. I'm eating like a king.

    UK - The best substitute I've found for anchovies is anchovy paste (comes in a tube). Use as little or as much as you like to get that perfect Casesar-dressing flavor. If you don't like the taste of anchovies, then I'd just use a little more salt to taste.

    how much does this make? Also, 33 grams of fat is a lot compared to a store bought brand of 18 grams. If I dont add anchovies what can I add to it?

    This makes 4 servings. I am unsure of the total volume it makes. Yes, this is higher fat, which is what we want! Keto is very low carb, high fat. I do not know a good substitute for the anchovies.
