    Alternatives to olive oil?

    I'm looking for alternatives to olive oil for things like salads, where the taste really stands out, because I really just do not like the taste of olive oil. Any suggestions?

    I really like avocado oil. You may like some of the nut oils too. A drizzle of walnut oil on salad is very flavorful.

    ETA: I keep my nut oils in the fridge as they can go rancid (like all nut products).

    some filtered and *slightly* warmed (just to keep it liquid) bacon fat? I always like its flavor : )

    Another thought on the olive oil: You may like the extra light or even regular olive oil rather than EVOO which has a strong flavor.

    A nut oil without the heavy load of polyunsaturated fat is macadamia nut oil, which is mostly monounsaturated.

    I'll add my vote for avocado oil. I find it luscious.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

    I didn't know this existed but it may just have changed my life. Can you cook with it or is it just good for salads?

    Apparently it's quite stable to cook with.

    I make mayo from it, which makes a terrific base for creamy salad dressings.

    I'm salivating. I want avocado infused mayo injected into my bloodstream right now!
