  • I don't know what 'salad oil' is... I would assume olive oil.

  • If you are referring to corn oil or vegetable oil, you can use olive oil. I actually grilled a steak last night that I brushed with olive oil. It was really good. I basically only use olive oil now.

  • you can use any oil in it's place, salad oil is an old term for blended oils, which could be sunflower, safflower, corn, canola or peanut to name a few

  • Actually olive oil has flavor that will stop other ingredients from shining through, I think I am going to use a more nuetral oil. So thanks for the idea.

  • I always use Italian dressing to marinated my steaks and lamb. So So very tender and delicious!

  • you can use Italian Dressing as a marinade; there are many types of oils available you just have to look them over when you go shopping

  • I use olive oil or canola oil in all my recipes

  • Salad oil is basically canola or whatever your preference is - the big bottles of liquid Crisco oils (or again, your preference). Salad oil is just an old term for it.
