The Great Salad Oil Swindle is a book by Wall Street Journal reporter Norman C. Miller about Tino De Angelis, a New Jersey-based wholesaler and commodities trader who dealt in vegetable oil futures contracts. The book was published in 1965 by Coward McCann.
In 1963 De Angelis was responsible for the Salad Oil scandal, a major financial scam involving fraudulent warehouse receipts, when he attempted to corner the soybean oil market. Soybean oil is an ingredient of salad dressing and has many other uses. In the aftermath of the Salad Oil Scandal, 51 investors were swindled out of approximately $175 million ($1.4 billion in 2018 dollars).
