What about using Grapeseed oil? It is really mild. Is it one of the oils on the approved list?

Courtney: I have used Grapeseed oil but I have heard it goes rancid quite fast so instead of worrying about it. I have simplified to the oils that keep well. Don't worry with this salad the lemon makes it so you don't taste the olive oil flavor.
