I have a question about the recipe "Roasted Potato Salad with Mustard-Walnut Vinaigrette" from Shannon. Can you substitute something for the walnut oil or is it crucial to the recipe?

It looks like its only to echo the flavor of the walnuts. You could just replace it with more olive oil.

Hi Megan,

I wouldn't say it's crucial, but if you have any other flavored oils on hand they might make a nice substitution. I've used a jalapeno-infused olive oil in lieu of the roasted walnut oil and it worked great (although was a lot spicier)!

I'm dreadfully allergic to nuts and nut oils. Here, I would sub a deeply flavorful extra-virgin olive oil, and sub roasted peanuts for the walnuts. That might sound heretical to some, but to those of us with nut allergies.........
