Can We Use Golden Beets for this Salad?

Can We Use Golden Beets for this Salad?

Absolutely! You can totally use golden beets for the salad. They have a milder, sweeter taste compared to the red ones, and they’re not as earthy.

How Long will the Dressing for the Beet Salad Stay Good?

This dressing for the beet salad will stay fresh for about 4 to 5 days if you keep it covered in the fridge. When you refrigerate it, it might get a bit thicker.

Just take it out of the fridge and let it sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before using it. This will help it loosen up a bit and be easier to pour over your salad.

Where Should I Keep this Beet Salad Dressing?

You can keep this dressing in the fridge, just make sure it’s covered in a jar or container with a lid. I personally love using mason jars for everything, from pickles to sauces to dressings.

The 16 oz. jars are perfect for dressings because they’re big enough to hold a batch for one or two weeks, but small enough to fit nicely in your fridge door.
