    I’m curious.
    Why vegetable oil and not olive oil?

      Hi Janette. Good question! I use olive oil for just about anything but I prefer regular vegetable oil for this dressing because it adds less flavor and allows for more of the sweetness to come through. I find, with good olive oil, the pungent olive flavor is too strong for the mellow dressing. Feel free to substitute as you wish, though!
