The BEST oil to use for this Italian dressing is extra virgin olive oil. However, I use any mild-flavored oils I have on hand and they work GREAT for this dressing!
A combination of olive oil with canola oil or vegetable oil will work great as well.

HOW LONG CAN I STORE HOMEMADE DRESSING?
The length of time stored for the dressing will depend on whether you use fresh or dried ingredients.
- FRESH: If you use fresh garlic and herbs, I don’t recommend refrigerating for longer than 3 days.
- DRIED: When using powdered garlic and dried herb, then the dressing may be stored for up to two weeks.
