Speaking of homemade, don’t stop at salad dressings! 

What is the healthiest salad dressing? All salad dressings have fat in them, which is what makes them taste good! What makes salad dressing healthy to us is making it homemade so there are no preservatives or additives. And then we try to add a moderate amount to our salads.

How long does salad dressing last? Shelf life of salad dressings varies. Typically a vinaigrette can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. Dairy-based dressings and dressings made with fresh ingredients (like onion, garlic, herbs, etc) will keep up to 1 week.

Does homemade vinaigrette need to be refrigerated? 
Homemade vinaigrette without fresh ingredients like garlic or herbs can be stored at room temperature. Typically we refrigerate all of our dressings for storage. Make sure to bring the vinaigrette to room temperature before serving, since sometimes refrigerating can cause the oil to solidify.
