neutral oil for cooking and salad

Dbird | Jul 3, 2004 10:32 PM

Wondering what current thinking is about neutral oils for cooking and salad dressing. I've been using canola for a while but know there are arguments for peanut, safflower etc. My main concern is taste (none is best) and performance (for pan-frying, in combination with butter and alone; and in salad dressing-- are there differences with red wine or rice wine vinegar or lemon, for instance?), then health.
