Of course! Olive oil is the traditional salad oil in olive-producing countries, but sunflower oil, canola oil, safflower oil, corn oil, walnut oil, or plain old "vegetable" oil all work and they all taste fine. Read the ingredients on a bottle of ready-to-use salad dressing for ideas.

Most people try a few different ones until they find one they like that fits in their budget.
