“My mom used to make this all the time when I was little. It is one of those recipes where there really isn't a recipe - she just did it. After a lengthy talk with my little sister this past week, I decided I had better try to remake these and write them down so we don't forget this wonderful little tidbits.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In small mixing bowl mix together the mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, milk. Mix well to dissolve sugar completely. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Arrange lettuce leaves (mom always used the larger iceberg type, but any will do) on salad plates.
  3. Peel and spear the bananas. (To spear, cut banana in half, carefully insert your finger into the center of the cut, the banana will separate into 3 sections we called spears.).
  4. Arrange spears on top of lettuce leaves.
  5. Drizzle generously with dressing over bananas and lettuce.
  6. Garnish with chopped spanish peanuts (if desired).
