- Store covered in the refrigerator. If you make this with vinegar and oil only, it will keep for months. If fresh ingredients are used, such as fruit juice, garlic or herbs, the dressing should be used within 7 days.
- The oil may solidify in the refrigerator because of the cool temperature—the dressing is still good. Just remove the dressing from the refrigerator a few minutes before using or run some warm water over the outside of the jar to melt the oil.
- *Other flavoring ingredient options: a tablespoon of chopped herbs; 1/2 clove chopped garlic; 1 teaspoons Dijon mustard; 1/2 teaspoon honey or agave; 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger; ; chopped hot peppers; chopped sundried tomatoes; 1-1/2 teaspoons flavoring oil (such as walnut, hazelnut, or toasted sesame); chopped lemon, lime or orange zest…use your imagination!
