Basic oil blend for salad dressings

I've been wanting to make my own salad dressing since we eat salads often and are utterly addicted to Ranch or Poppyseed dressings. So I was excited to find this basic oil blend that is super healthy and I can use it in any dressing recipe I find that I like. The basic proportion is to use 2/3 of this mixture to 1/3 of a type of vinegar (my favorite is apple cider vinegar :) I found this blend in THIS book.

Basic oil blend for salad dressing
I cup of coconut oil, gently melted
1 cup of expeller-expressed or cold-pressed sesame oil
1 cup of extra-virgin olive oil

Mix all ingredients together in a glass jar, cover tightly, and store at room temperature
