This is the first recipe that had good reviews on this site that was really bad for me. This is way too much mayonnaise. The dressing smells and tastes like fish flavored mayonnaise.

This is a GREAT recipe. Instead of anchovies, I used fish sauce b/c that's what I had. Instead of garlic cloves, granulated garlic (dry). Followed the recipe in prep the same. It makes a great ...
