Each salad is different but most the time salads last about 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. Place the salad in an airtight container and store. Make ahead if needed and follow the recipes instructions for each one.
- Making Ahead Salad: Prepare and add all the ingredients together in a bowl or even separate bowls until ready to toss together. Place in the refrigerator and mix together within a few hours of preparing.
- The Dressing: The dressing can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container. Place in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
- Refrigerating: Salad is best stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. If the salad is already tossed together with the dressing it will last in the refrigerator 24 hours. Keeping the dressing separate will help the salad last 2 to 3 days longer, however, it is still best fresh. The fruits and some vegetables do turn colors and even lose their flavoring once sliced and added into the salad.
