In a large bowl, combine garlic, mustard powder, olive oil , vegan mayo, vegan parmesan, Italian herbs, vinegar season with salt and pepper. Mix with a wire whisk or spatula until well combined and creamy.

Alternatively add all the ingredients in a mason jar which is big enough. Put a lid on top, shake 5 times up and down until everything is well mixed.

Leftovers will stay fresh properly stored in an airtight container or jar with a lid on top for around 2 weeks.

Can you freeze homemade dressing?

Yes you can, but thawing will be an issue, because the ingredients will separate from each other.

So do yourself a favor and store it in the fridge where it will last for 2 week. Also it will taste better than freezing it.
