Little crazy

I was making the dressing for this salad when all of a sudden I had a weird thought. The salad was – as usual – made up of all sort of things I had lying around in the fridge that needed to be eaten and I was in the process of making a dressing that would be good with it. It was ok-ish but needed something extra. As it happens I had some overripe bananas as well and all of a sudden I decided to mash a banana into the dressing.


Sounds a little weird right? Adding a banana to a salad dressing? But as it turns out it was a pretty good idea. It makes it sweeter (obviously) and also creamy. For me this was a big success and I will definitely be using that again in the future! For now the recipe for this delicious salad! Enjoy!
