    THANKS!
    You'll probably be disappointed in using it as a salad dressing. Lukewarm (which it would need to be to be pourable) over salad doesn't seem very appealing.

    Or does it exist? I can't find any for less that $9.00. Is that normal? Coconut shrimp cooked in olive oil is good, but I'm sure they'd be better in coconut oil.


    Suggestions?

    I suggest a baggy sweatshirt to give you the five-finger discount...


    No, seriously though, you're not gonna find it for much cheaper than that. It's spendy stuff. O_o


    I know many people here like the Tropical Traditions brand, though I've never tried it myself. Not cheaper, but definitely quality stuff.

    If you have a Whole Paycheck near you their house brand (365) is $7. A couple bucks cheaper, anyway!

    It's so calorie/fat dense that it's totally worth it!


    I would personally buy different brands till you like one the best. The first one I tried was mucho expensivo and the taste sucked and made me want to gag, whereas the cheapo one I have now is great.

    Hi guys, I&#39;m new here. Soooooo, I have a couple questions about coconut oil...


    Is it good on salad? -and if so what mixes with it, like vinegar or what just salt and pepper? And what should it taste and feel like, ya know a good variety should be what- sweet, or tangy or thick and sticky or smooth.???.. I&#39;m getting some tonight when I go shopping, but I wanted some heads up on it if anyone can fill in some details.


    thanks!

    Never tried it on salad as it&#39;s solid at room temp bit like butter - doesn&#39;t take much to melt...

    CO is solid at room temp, so it&#39;s application as a salad oil is somewhat limited. It turns liquid at around 100F so you can warm is slightly and use in salad.


    I got some cheap stuff at walmart $6 for a big jar, but it is the refined stuff so it is flavorless, which I find to be a real bummer. I love the flavor of the virgin stuff.

    It's grandma, but you can call me sir.
