Can I Eat It Filter: homemade salad dressing edition

In an effort to not eat so much HFCS, I bought a salad dressing mixer similar to this
. The first time I used it, I put it in the fridge after mixing and, of course, the oil solidified. The next time, I just left it on the counter, but Mr. Arkham was concerned. The dressing only contained olive oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, spices, and garlic. Think it's safe to keep out of the fridge? For how long? Will the garlic go bad? (I'm assuming any creamy dressings would need to be refrigerated, of course.)
And if commercial dressings are full of preservatives, why are they all "refrigerate after opening"?
