Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Avocado Salad expire?
Avocado Salad is typically freshest if consumed within 1-2 days of preparation. Unopened store-bought avocado salad can last up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator past the sell-by date if properly stored. Once opened, it's best eaten within 1-2 days. Freezing avocado salad is not commonly recommended due to the different textures present in the salad.
How do you tell if Avocado Salad is bad?
If your avocado salad turns a darker color or develops a slimy surface or sour smell, it's wise to toss it out. In addition, if there are any signs of mold, discard the salad immediately.
Tips for storing Avocado Salad to extend shelf life
• Always refrigerate the salad promptly after use, and use an airtight container to prevent exposure to outside bacteria. • If you are storing a homemade avocado salad, consider squeezing a bit of lemon or lime juice not only to add flavor but also to delay the browning process of the avocado. • Avoid keeping the salad at room temperature for a long period of time to prevent bacterial growth.
