From Wikipedia ...... "Mustard oil is not allowed to be imported or sold in the U.S. for use in cooking, due to its high erucic acid content." "Based on studies done on laboratory animals in the early 1970s, erucic acid appears to have toxic effects on the heart at high enough doses"
So how do I make a recipe that has an ingredient that is illegal in the US? Move to Canada?
This looks like a really good recipe, and I will be making it very soon. Has anybody here made it with the mustard oil? If so, where did you get it?
My husband loved this salad - I couldn't believe how much he ate (or how quickly!) Just a few changes for me: I made a lot less than the 10 servings (about 1/4 of the recipe) and I added a bit of cabbage slaw (1/4 cup) to the dish to tame the radish. I also used regular olive oil in lieu of mustard since I don't care for mustard and omitted the dill since my husband doesn't care for that herb. Otherwise, I made as directed and it was a snap to prepare. I served as a side to C.L.'s recipe for Stilton Burgers which complimented this dish really well & was very filling. I will definitely make again; enjoy!
