Greek tomato salad, with onions and other vegetables, is a well-known Mennonite recipe. Mennonite banana cream pudding is a dessert commonly found at Mennonite potlucks.
To make the Greek tomato salad, peel and slice 8 tomatoes, slice 1 onion, and chop up 1 green pepper and 1 cucumber. Mix the vegetables together in a bowl. To make a dressing, mix together 2 tablespoons of chopped mint, parsley or basil with 1 tablespoon of balsamic or wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add 1 clove of minced garlic if desired. Pour the seasoning over the vegetables. Add 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella or cubed feta cheese and some olives.
To make the Mennonite banana cream pudding, mix together 2 boxes of vanilla pudding and 4 cups of milk until the mixture is smooth. Cook on medium, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens. Set it aside to cool. Whip 1 cup of whipping cream, and combine it with 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Combine 2/3 cups of the cream mixture with the cold custard, then add 10 rolled graham crackers and 3 diced bananas. Pour the mixture into a bowl, and garnish with the remaining cream and bananas.
