Nut oils

Nut oils: Oils pressed from hazelnuts and walnuts add a special fragrance to salad dressings. And from a nutritional point of view, they are a good choice because they contain a high ratio of monounsaturated fats. Nut oils are available in specialty stores—be prepared, they can be expensive. They are prone to rancidity, so purchase small bottles and store them in the refrigerator.
