I absolutely love this salad. I eat it about once a week. I like to add a table spoon or so of almond butter to the banana-milk dressing and put some pecans or other nuts on top. So far I have mostly used iceberg lettuce, because it has a nice mild flavor, but I might try it with romaine next.

Just joined. so excited. but I have a problem already. Not sure about soy milk. nut milk seem much less processed to me. I can actually make almond milk, but I can't make soy milk. don't want to buy the ones in a carton at the store. I'd rather make it myself. what to sub. please advise.

Rawdancer: I haven't tried this recipe yet, but you can pretty much always substitute your own home made nut milk in place of soymilk in recipes. I personally use the Edensoy brand organic unsweetened soymilk. It doesn't have a lot of ingredients in it. I think it is just the organic soybeans, water, and a trace amount of salt. I think it is only around 5 mg of sodium per cup.

If I omit the blueberries and add fresh raspberries, does it become a Canadian
patriotic salad?
Kidding aside, this is a very refreshing summer dish.
I added flax & chia seeds.

Great idea on adding raspberries.  I didn't omit the blueberries, though!

One of my favorites.  Last time I made it I added a TBSP of Doc Fuhrman's cocoa powder: https://www.drfuhrman.com/shop/products/13/cocoa-powder.  Loved it.  Next time, in addition to the cocoa powder, going to add some Ceylon cinnamon: https://www.drfuhrman.com/shop/products/11/ceylon-cinnamon.  Will let you know how it goes!

Update: the Ceylon cinnamon adds another dimension, but recommend starting out with just a teaspoon.  Also, I tried it with arugula in lieu of the lettuce.  Oh man.

I liked this salad, but I think it would be improved by adding more fruit and changing the dressing a bit.  I have an aversion to bananas when they aren't just fresh bananas and the flavor of the bananas in the salad bothered me a little.  I'm not sure how I would change it yet.  If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

This is my favorite salad! I subsitute the romaine lettuce with baby arugla - gives it a little kick.
