Homemade salad dressing is a healthy alternative to commercially sold dressings. Because it is made from scratch, you do not consume the synthetic ingredients and preservatives included in store-bought brands. These artificial ingredients are only added to prolong the dressing’s shelf life and can poorly affect your health. Homemade dressing may not last as long, but it is healthier and stays fresh for a reasonable amount of time when stored properly.
Place the dressing in a glass jar. Glass jars are ideal for storing liquid items. Unlike plastic containers, they are nonporous, so they will not absorb the dressing. Cover the jar with a tight lid.
Refrigerate your dressing. Homemade dressing should always be stored in a cool, dry place.
Discard your dressing within two weeks. Monitor your dressing and throw it away when its color starts to change.
