    How Long Does Salsa Last? _ Urgent!

    Hey, does anyone know how long opened salsa will last in the fridge? It looks ok but I haven't smelled it. Not sure what it's supposed to smell like?

    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Don't know. But being non-dairy, 2 weeks for an open container is a good rule of thumb.

    I personally test the stuff myself, but wouldn't recommend it.

    You can usually tell if you smell it. Fresh salsa only lasts a few days, store bought probably lasts longer since it probably has preservatives.

    store bought should have an expiration date on it. Homemade....I wouldn't go past three days.

    It will probably last quite awhile in the fridge. What's the date on it?

    store bought. It's from the summer... well, maybe spring.
    but I had some in Aug but it was OK then. The date doesn't matter once it's been opened - May 18, 2007 it says. It smells Ok, just very liquidy on top.

    i did buy another jar, but I don't want to waste all I have

    why can't they package stuff (like spaghetti sauce or salad dressing) in smaller containers for those of us who can't eat it all up quickly?

    Oh my goodness...this thread strikes me as really funny even though I know it's a serious question. If it's homemade salsa and the cilantro in it still looks fresh, I think it's safe to serve it!

    If there's mold on it, you'd better throw it away!



    Just give them a few shots and a couple of margaritas and they may not be able to tell the difference!!!

    Though we ARE going to be drinking... I guess if they puke we can blame the alcohol

    I guess I will toss it, thanks.
    This is why everything I eat comes frozen or packaged

    Ok, what about salad dressing?

    If it is mayo based....let it go. If it's an oil based....could last a lifetime!

    Salsa isn't really very expensive. My rule is: If I'm not sure, it goes into the garbage. Life's too short to eat food that isn't fresh.

    you are a riot girl/ salad dressing lasts a long time, and you know if you buy salsa you can freeze it in small zip logs and take out what you need and keep the rest frozen
