when it calls for salad oil?

tazochai | Apr 7, 200910:53 AM     8

Some recipes call for "salad oil". What oil do you use when a recipe says that? a google search for "salad oil" turned up many conflicting opinions. I'm curious as to what people that enjoy food commonly grab. (vegetable oil, corn oil, peanut oil, olive oil, any others, etc)

Specifically, I'm making a recipe for a cracker spread (appetizer), don't know if that matters.

I've seen some carrot cake recipes call for salad oil.
