Monkey Salad

This salad got its name from a couple of boys who had lived at one time in Panama, and were visiting us. They said it was what they fed the monkeys in Panama. Maybe the name and an explanation of from where the name came will be enough to get the kids to like this salad. I think you will like the freshness it has with the fruit added to the crisp lettuce.

Monkey Salad


  • 1 head Iceberg Lettuce
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Navel Orange
  • 1/3 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper


Core the lettuce, and then chop it into bite-size pieces. Peel the orange and slice the segments in smaller pieces- I use 3rds. Peel the banana and slice into rounds.

Pour the oil and vinegar over the salad, sprinkle the salt and pepper on the salad, and toss to mix all leaves with the dressing and spice.
