"We love this recipe as written. Once in a while we'll throw in a handful of coconut for something a little different. This was the 1st salad my kids helped me make when they were little. They thought it was great fun to be the banana "choppers". Definitely a refreshing salad on a hot day or a good old standby for potlucks and picnics."

"This was really good. I don't like pudding but it had less pudding texture because of the sour cream and orange juice. It was a hit with the group I made it for. Yummy!"
