What is the Best Way To Store Greek Dressing?
Store dressing in a glass jar or container that has a tight fitting lid. Keep refrigerated in-between use. This dressing will eventually solidify when refrigerated. When this happens, set it out 30 minutes prior to using or hold the bottom of the jar under running warm water or place the jar in a bowl with warm water for a few minutes.
How Long Will Homemade Greek Dressing Last?
If stored properly, this dressing will last up to 4 days.
