DRESSING

SALAD

As requested by those attending the DC Qfest .... The "Banana Salad" My wife's recipe is simular to the one in Smoke & Spice, page 346. although she did not get hers from the book, it used to be her grandmothers.

Serves six.

In a small, heavy sauce pan, combine the sugar, egg yolk, and vinegar. Warm over low heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar disolves and the mixture thickens. Remove the heat and mix in the Miracle Whip.

Combine the bananas and peanuts in a large bowl. Spoon the dressing over the salad and mix well. Top with additional peanuts if you wish. The salad is best eaten within a couple of hours.

My wife always makes up a big batch of dressing and uses what she wants for a given salad and stores the left over dressing in the refrigerator. It will hold good for one or two weeks. If you can keep the kids out of it, it may last a day or two. When traveling she takes the dressing (in a cooler), nuts and bananas with her and mixes it up just before eating. It take no time to make the salad. Ummmmm good too.
