Mary Enigs Triple Oil Blend is a wonderful blend of three healthy oils that can be used in salad dressings or as a cooking oil. This oil blend contains an equal balance of Omega 3, 6, and 9. When this oil is used when cooking, flavors come through beautifully, and the blend does not burn as easily as pure coconut oil. When melted coconut oil is combined with other oils, it will stay liquid.
In salads, this Mary Enigs Triple Oil Blend provides all the benefits of coconut oil and does not have the strong taste of olive oil. In mayonnaise, it provides firmness when chilled.
Triple Oil Blend is by Dr. Mary Enig, PhD, a nutritionist and lipid specialist, and one of the founders of the Weston A. Price Foundation for Wise Traditions in Food, Farming, and the Healing Arts. Check out Eat Fat, Lose Fat: The Healthy Alternative to Trans Fats, by Mary Enig and Sally Fallon.

Melt or liquify the coconut oil at a low heat. Place the amount of coconut oil you want to melt either on the stove, in a container in a pot of water, or just in hot water on the counter inside separate container. These techniques works very fast!
You can melt the coconut oil in a small pan over low heat. But you must watch it carefully to to not overheat. Coconut melts quickly at about 76 degrees F.
It is also not advised to melt coconut oil in the microwave.
Once the melted coconut oil is melted, add the olive oil and sesame oil. Place the coconut oil mixture in a jar of your choice. Cover tightly with a lid and shake well to blend. When coconut oil is mixed with the other oils, it stays liquid in cooler weather.
Cover tightly and store at room temperature.
