Safe, but why?: I don't know what good this would do, but it certainly won't be harmful, assuming no more than a couple ounces of oil and that you're not trying to control your weight. (An ounce of olive oil has about 250 calories.) If in moderation and you like the taste, feel free. If not, don't do it.
