I enjoy making this Lion House Layered Salad for get togethers. There is just something about the way it layers up. It makes for a pretty salad and looks a little extra special. Or if you want, just make it for dinner, it does come together pretty quickly.


Lion House Layered Salad


Can I Change up Some of the Ingredients in this Lion House Layered Salad?

  • I would not leave out any of the ingredients in this salad (unless you really don’t care for some of them).
  • But you could add in some other ingredients if you wanted to.
  • Like we love sunflower seeds or grated carrots; chick peas are another one of my favorites.
  • You really can add anything that you enjoy as long as it won’t make the lettuce go soggy. 



Other Ingredients that you May Want to Try in this Salad:

  • And guess what, I just happen to have some fresh cucumbers so I think I will add them as well.
  • Also if you are not big on Swiss cheese, use whatever flavor you like!
  • And for just a little extra protein, I will add 3 crumbled boiled eggs.



This looks like orange cheese, but it is grated carrots! 🙂
