Vegetable fats and oils are lipid materials derived from plants. Physically, oils are liquid at room temperature, and fats are solid. Chemically, both fats and oils are composed of triglycerides, as contrasted with waxes which lack glycerin in their structure. Although many different parts of plants may yield oil,in commercial practice, oil is extracted primarily from seeds.
A high consumption of omega-6polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), which are found in most types of vegetable oil (e.g. soybean oil, corn oil - the most consumed in USA, sunflower oil, etc.), may increase the likelihood that postmenopausal women will develop breast cancer.

This salad deserves five stars. We made the salad with some leftover roasted lamb leg. The mint-basil dressing was terrific, and it went so well with the lamb. The salad had lots of great texture and flavour.
Didn't have red bell pepper, so used yellow bell pepper instead. A delicious way to use up leftover lamp. Definitely a keeper.
