Personal Notes:
I saw Paula Deen make this salad on her television show and didn't think it would be good with bananas and green pepper. I fixed it any way for a 55+ Luncheon bcause I was also intrigued by the mixture of ingredients. I got lots of compliments on it and liked it myself. It has now become a favorite of my family. Psalm 34:8
