Grandpa's Sandwich

This is a sandwich that my grandfather used to make, which is now one of my favorites. It may not sound tasty, but you can't knock it until you try it!

2 slices wheat or white bread
1 banana
2 tbs peanut butter
1 tbs mayo

Spread peanut butter on one slice of bread, mayo on the other. Slice banana and put on peanut butter half. Top with lettuce, and then put mayo covered slice on top. Goes great with pretzels!
