Banana Nut Salad

Sena Wilson


This recipe is a nice change from a green salad. The tangy flavor (from the apple cider vinegar) compliments dishes such as poultry, fish, etc. My family really likes the crunchiness and flavor of the walnut pieces. It is better to use nuts coarsely chopped in large pieces. I have also used this basic dressing mix and substitued a variety of freshly chopped apples, green grapes,pineapple and walnuts.
