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.
1In a mixing bowl, combine salad dressing, apple cider vinegar, and powdered sugar. Mix well with a whipping tool. Gradually add milk 1 tbs. at a time until smooth. Fold in sliced bananas; fold in nuts reserving a few for garnish. Pour on a salad plate garnished with lettuce leafs. Add reserved nut pieces on top.
2*For healthy conscious cooks, you can substitute banana flavored yogurt for the dressing.
