Hack:  Use this dressing over Brussels Sprout Caesar Salad!

Hack: Anchovies can be covered in oil and sealed in a sandwich bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. Alternately, they can be spread out in a single layer and frozen (still in the sandwich bag, if desired. I suggest you double bag the fillets before storing them.
