Can i substitute Hondashi or bonito for the anchovy? If so, what would be the equivalent amount of hondashi?

Hondashi is bonito soup stock that i found at my local asian store

Hi Maria—I'm actually making this recipe for Thanksgiving, too! If the hondashi you have is powdered (not a liquid stock), I would just make the dressing as written, then sprinkle in the hondashi granules to taste (just like you would with salt); if it's a liquid stock, I worry that would thin out the dressing too much. I bet bonito flakes would be delicious, too (both incorporated into the dressing and on top of the salad at the end). Again, I just would add these to taste, until the dressing has the right balance of saltiness and umami to you. Happy Thanksgiving!
