How long will ranch dip last?

The dip needs to go in the refrigerator inside an air tight container. It will last up to 1 week if stored properly.


No, they are different. Ranch dressing is thinner to use on salad and it also has mayonnaise in it. It is really easy to make though and we have a simple homemade ranch dressing recipe.

Ranch dip does not have mayo as an ingredient. It is also much thicker so that it can be used for dipping.

While different, both are very easy to make and so delicious. I really like making homemade dips and dressing.

They taste a ton better than anything at the grocery store and take just minutes to make. It is also inexpensive to make.
