Recipe: Banana and Peanut Salad

A very good fruit-and-nut combination for a SALAD consists of bananas and ground peanuts. The bananas, after being cut in half lengthwise, are rolled in the peanuts, placed on a lettuce leaf, and served with Dressing. If it is desired to improve the flavor, the bananas may be dipped into the SALAD Dressing before being rolled in the peanuts.

Peel the required number of bananas, scrape the pithy material from their surface, and cut in half lengthwise. Grind the peanuts rather fine and roll each half of banana in them. Place on a garnished SALAD plate and serve with boiled Dressing.
