Tips
  • The precise answer to the question “How long does salsa last once opened?” depends to a large extent on storage conditions — keep opened salsa refrigerated and tightly covered at all times.
  • Once opened, salsa should be used or frozen by time shown — refrigerate in covered glass jar or plastic container after opening.
  • To further extend the shelf life of opened salsa, freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • How long does salsa last in the freezer for safety purposes? The freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • How can you tell if salsa has gone bad? If salsa develops an off odor, flavor or appearance, or if mold appears, it should be discarded.
