the fridge life of homemade dressings

August 4, 2013

Awhile ago (sorry it has taken so long) my brother asked me how long the homemade dressings I make will last. I usually do not have much leftover, or when I do I use it up the next day. However, I decided to make a list in case you want to double or triple some of the recipes so that you always have homemade on hand.

Please note that this only gives you an approximate shelf life. Many factors can and will influence how long food can last.

~1 week

Blue Cheese Dressing 
Blue Cheese Vinaigrette
Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Classic Caesar Dressing
Creamy Cilantro Spice Dressing


~1-2 weeks

Warm Bacon Dressing

~3-4 weeks  

Roasted Garlic & Parsley Vinaigrette
Taco Dressing 
Zesty Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette

With just a little bit of planning, you could have a months-worth of dressings on hand. No needing to grab the overprocessed, store-bought stuff.
