Ever have a banana this way?

Light years ago, my mom would slice a banana, place it on a leaf of lettuce and spread mayonnaise and sprinke cocktail peanuts on it. Just wondering if anyone ever heard of it. It is quite good, actually.

Well, sweet and savoury go nicely together so I could see how this could be interesting. PB and banana is a classic favourite, so banana and mayo might be good.

How would you eat it though if you put it on a lettuce leaf? Rolled up, like salad rolls? I'd probably make a big mess.

I think my mom used...

...the lettuce for decoration. Just two slices of banana, mayo and peanuts. I would eat my PB-banana sandwich on toasted bread with a drizzle of honey.

I've had a banana/mayo sandwich but never thought of the nuts - I bet it's good!

The flavor of peanuts and peanut butter compliment so many other flavors. As a child, I used to eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches, and peanut buter and Miracle Whip sandwiches. So what you suggest is just another form of the two. I could see it working together quite well. Also, try Macadamia nuts, or Filberts (hazlenuts), or cashews. Those flavors also enhance other foods they are mixed with.

Oh, and thanks for the topic. Nuts are a great addition to many foods, some that we wouldn't normaly think to try.

My mom fixed that for me, but used peanut butter. I loved it.

This was before Elvis was a gleam in his father's eye.

I like banana sandwiches, especially if I don't feel like making or eating something heavier. I just use sliced bananas, a little mayo and whole wheat bread. It makes me feel very homey.

Not the same. We have some appetizer made of a1/4 slice of square bread, covered by mayonnaise (it's over all necessary not to allow the humidity of tomato sauce on bread), tomato sauce, 1 slice of banana and two drops of lemon. They are considered just a bit....exotic..:))
