"Katharine...olive oil clumps up when refrigerated. It will unclump if you leave it out of the fridge for 30-45 minutes. Shake well and it will emulsify like it's supposed to. You could also use another oil. I like safflower. It doesn't clump when cold. The recipe as written should keep for quite awhile as it has no dairy in it."

"Loved the taste of this dressing! I made just enough for a single salad so put all of the ingredients in a jar and shook to combine instead of using a blender as directed. Also omitted the water so cut back a bit on the vinegar & lemon juice."

"This is by far the best homemade dressing I have tried yet. However, I need to ask how long it last in the refrigerator? I also had an issue when I went to use it again, it had gotten all clumpy, is that normal, or is it unusable at this point?"
