How Long Does Homemade Avocado Ranch Last?
I typically store my avocado ranch dressing in an air-tight jar and refrigerate leftovers for up to 5 days.
The “mom” in me wants to note that a clean spoon should be used each time to dip into the jar to get the dressing in order to avoid contaminating the rest of the dressing in the jar. In other words, I know you’ll want to lick the spoon but try to not double-dip.
