My great-aunt Iva always brought this dish to the family dinners at Grandma's farm. Whenever I spotted her "Banana Salad," as she called it, I forgot all about cakes and pies. This was IT--the best banana pudding in the world! Her secret? She did NOT use vanilla wafers like everyone else did. It was a simple banana pudding with crushed peanuts on top. The combination of those two flavors was heavenly!

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
