Orange Banana Salad Recipe

Orange Banana Salad Recipe

I CAME up with this salad when an unexpected guest showed up for lunch and I had to "make do" with what was on hand. I thought it would complement my homemade ginger chicken soup, and it did! It's a wonderful make-ahead salad and very attractive. -Mary Paulson, Hopkins, Minnesota
