How long does Neiman Marcus dip stay good in the fridge?
Honestly, this is such a delicious dip that it will probably be eaten up before you have a chance to store it for very long.
To store this 5-ingredient dip, put it in an airtight container. Plastic wrap could work if you wrap it tight enough. You need to keep the air out of it.
It will stay fresh for up to two weeks. After about a week the texture will change since the sour cream and cream cheese will soften the crunchiness of the bacon.
It really does taste the best right after you make it.
Is this a ket0-friendly dip?
Yes, Nieman Marcus dip is keto-friendly. There aren’t any added sugars and dairy is naturally low in carbs.
When you eat it, just dip a low cab raw veggie like celery or cucumber into instead of crackers.
And always track your macros. Sour cream and cream cheese have higher levels of fat. If you are trying to consume less fat, it’s a good thing to keep in mind.
