    There is a product called Salad Bowl Finish available at Lowes or HD that is certified food safe and is designed for just that.

      I think that Behlen's makes a salad bowl finish. I like Boos oil, which is made for butcher blocks and is totally nontoxic. Also smells nice.

        Mineral oil is a popular and very cheap product that is perfectly fine to use on items that come into contact with food. It's primary use is as a laxative and it's available in the pharmacy section of your local grocery store.

        Mineral oil is a non-drying oil, so while it will soak into the wood, it doesn't ever cure like standard wood finishes do. This makes it easy to restore, just wipe some more one when the board looks dry. But beware that until it soaks into the wood completely, it will still look & feel wet and may leave residue on any other surfaces it contacts. It's totally harmless, so nothing to worry about.
