Notes

To maintain the freshness and flavor of Italian dressing, it's important to store it properly. Here are the recommended steps:
  1. Refrigeration:
    • Store Italian dressing in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  2. Airtight Container:
    • Transfer the Italian dressing to an airtight container before refrigerating. This prevents exposure to air, which can lead to changes in flavor and texture.
  3. Shake Before Use:
    • Before using the dressing, give it a good shake or stir. Over time, ingredients may naturally separate, and shaking ensures that the components are well-mixed.
  4. Avoid Contamination:
    • Use clean utensils when scooping or pouring Italian dressing to prevent any contamination. This is particularly important if you plan to store the dressing for an extended period.
