  • Leaving in the fridge overnight will really enhance the flavor and texture.


How to store

Once you make this sauce, just add it to a container or a jar with a lid and store for later.

How to reheat

This sauce is actually meant to be served cold once you make it so there is no reason to reheat on its own. If you want it hot, just add to the sandwich and reheat the entire sandwich.

How long does this sauce stay good in the fridge?

I would consume within 7-10 days after making this sauce. Since it’s made using condiments that would normally just be sitting on your shelf, it should be fine to be left in your fridge for that duration of time.
