I stole this Caesar Salad with Olives and Pine Nuts idea from Truffles, a terrific restaurant here in Bloomington. Do use good quality olives—I used half green, half black, packed in olive oil, from our superb local gourmet grocery Sahara Mart. A great Fat Fast salad.
Bottled Caesar dressing is so often harsh, but this is rich and mellow. In the Caesar Dressing Fat Fast Recipe from Fat Fast Cookbook 2, I used two anchovies because I only like a hint of them, but my husband, an anchovy fiend, said he’d love it with another anchovy or two.

This Buffalo Chicken Soup recipe from the Fat Fast Cookbook 2 is devastating. I’ve analyzed this as 10 servings, but unless you live alone, you won’t get that much. The family will eat it all, while you’re sticking to your Fat Fast portions—which should be about 1½ cups each.
Dana’s Low-Carb Gluten-Free No-Sugar Ketchup Redux. My most-published recipe has been my ketchup, appearing in most of my cookbooks. But since the last time I published it, I discovered I like it better made with tomato sauce than with tomato paste – it’s less likely to separate. So here you go! Feel free to double this if you’re going to use it as an ingredient in a barbecue sauce or meat loaf or something.
