        Our experience has been 10-14 days, but it really tastes best after the first 24 hours so the flavors have time to unite.

      Re: MYO Cucumber Salsa

      You can save a lot of fat calories by substituting Plain or Greek Yogurt without sacrificing flavour. They are also less expensive that Sour Cream and even cheaper if you make them at home.
