Recipe Notes

How to Store Leftovers

Leftover ranch should be kept in an airtight jar or container in the fridge. It lasts for up to 5 days! Be sure to shake it very well before you use it.

How to freeze

Simply place it in a freezer bag, leaving plenty of extra room for expansion and squeezing out the air before sealing it. Lay it down flat in the freezer and avoid placing other items on top of it.

Frozen ranch lasts for up to 4 months. Thaw it out in the fridge before using it, and mix it extremely well. You may find that it is thicker after it's been frozen. To thin it back out, simply stir in a little bit of almond milk or filtered water at a time until you're happy with the consistency.
