I can't find Safflower Oil. What can I substitute? Canola, or Olive? Thanks!

Question? I live in an area where green mango is not something I can find. I would like to maintain the nutritional value - fruits and vegs, so rather than just omit it is there something I could use as a replacement? I'm somewhat new to cooking so substituting is a little daunting, though I do like the idea of using cilantro as a replacement for mint.

I made this for dinner last night. My changes were: omitted green mango, and substituted olive oil for safflower oil, celery for red bell pepper, and fresh cilantro for fresh mint. My husband and I really liked it. I will definitely make this again.

I made this over the weekend with plain white noodles and as a hot dish (my daughter doesn't like cold noodles and can't eat buckwheat) and it was spectacular! I cooked the vegetables, so probably not a true 'salad' anymore, but was so great that we even had it for dinner as well.
