How to Store Green goddess salad & dressing
Whether you have any leftovers or if you want to make some ahead to share at a backyard bbq, the salad and dressing will last 2-3 days in an air tight container that’s stored in the refrigerator.
We think this salad is better after sitting in the refrigerator for a few days. It allows the ingredients to soak into the chopped vegetables.
