Here's a lightly sweet, refreshing dressing that lets the flavor of banana come through. A homemaker with four grown children, I have an extensive recipe collection. This dressing is so good over crisp greens or fresh fruit. Give it a try! —Gloria Kirchman, Eden Prairie, Minnesota

"How did this recipe get only 3 stars? I thought it was a standout dressing! It's going into my "Blue Ribbon" file. Furthermore, it's easy and can be made ahead. Be sure to use FRESH lemon juice, though, it always makes a big difference in the taste. Thanks,Gloria!"
