Slyh in the Kitchen’s Famous House Salad

For Mother’s Day last year, I made the famous Slyh in the Kitchen House Salad for the first time. It was an immediate hit. I’ve made it for most family gatherings since. I don’t know why it’s taken so long for me to post this recipe? It is after all our logo! It’s such a pretty and colorful salad; I had to share it with everyone!

The recipe isn’t all that complicated. I think what makes it such a pretty looking salad is being layered onto a platter rather than in a bowl. Sometimes the presentation of the dish can make all the difference.

Our House Salad is fantastic. It works as a great side dish or even as a main meal. I like to eat the leftovers for lunch the next day. The salad also pairs really well with most salad dressings, so people can choose whatever they like. You could even top the salad with some of Jon’s Grilled Italian Chicken for another fabulous dinner option.

    This reminds me of a trip to the salad bar. All of my favorites, but you assembled it for me! The cranberries are an interesting ingredient that I wouldn’t have thought of but they sound perfect. And you’re right, presentation can make all the difference. Somehow it seems even more special on a platter!

      I love cranberries on a salad; they give such a nice little pop of sweetness.
