A vinaigrette recipe calls for "blended" olive oil. Can I make my own, or should I only buy at store?

Without seeing the recipe, I can't be sure.
Blended olive oil is usually made of olive oil and another neutral vegetable oil, both for lower cost and a more neutral flavor.
But I'm guessing the recipe author specified that because one or both of these reasons:
1) other flavors are so strong that an assertive-tasting extra virgin olive oil would be lost in the mixture;
2) to save money on the ingredients.
You can buy a blended oil in many grocery stores, make your own, or just use any neutral-tasting or light oil you have on hand.
