I don't really like to use canola oil, either. I want to make an olive oil mayo that will be acceptable, but I haven't been successful yet, nor have I had the time lately. I had some canola mayo left over, and I used that. Hopefully, I will have olive oil mayo perfected soon.
I did see olive oil mayo at my local Wild Oats market, but on inspection it was at least half soybean oil, I think. No thanks.
I have done the curried chicken salad with plain olive oil, but you really need to add a lot, or it will end up pretty dry.

Reason: wrong oil type - it was worse!
