How to Store Balsamic Dressing
After making balsamic dressing you can use it right away or you can store it in the fridge. I like to make a large batch of dressing and keep it in a mason jar in my fridge so I can just grab it whenever I want it. But it is so easy to make that I can make it fresh in no time if I run out.
If you are storing homemade salad dressing then pour the dressing into a mason jar and tightly close the lid. Store the salad dressing in the fridge, it will keep for up to 3 weeks. Well I should say is it can keep for that long but the chances of it actually lasting that long with out everyone eating it are slim to none.
