In a state filled with an endless amount of great burgers, tacos, Tex-mex, and fried chicken, it can sometimes be hard to find a healthy alternative or a go-to salad spot. So, we've rounded up a list of salads that are guaranteed not to bore, to refer back to when you're craving those leafy greens!

Updated June 2023


Brussel sprout salads have become super popular and for good reason! This popular spot has one of our faves, with brussels as the star of the salad, paired with a little bit of kale and Marcona almonds, basil vinaigrette, and parmigiano reggiano. This is one of their eight salad options, so if that's not your salad vibe, they have other great ones to try!

Craving Mexican food but not a taco? Try the fan-favorite Doce Mesas Taco Salad! This fresh salad is the perfect Tex-Mex salad option filled with lettuce, roasted corn, beef picadillo, avocado, cheese, tostadas, and tomatoes, all topped with a homemade vinaigrette. It's the perfect afternoon pick-me-up and a great way to get your Tex-Mex fix in a lighter way!

This loaded salad comes with everything and more! It has crispy uncured-cherry smoked pork belly, pecorino romano, egg, tomato, pickled sweet peppers, shredded carrots, and crispy shallots. And if you're looking for a little something different, we also highly recommend the shaved brussels salad!

The Thai Noodle & Chicken Salad is a unique blend of rotisserie chicken, mango, chopped peanuts, basil, and mint. You can choose to get it with a prime-seared filet, or you can get it without protein. It's delicious -- especially if you pair it with the spinach and artichoke dip before!

The Emerald Kale & Rotisserie Chicken Salad is so widely talked about around town, it's almost impossible not to love! It's made with fresh mint, roasted peanut vinaigrette, and grated Reggiano. The Macho Salad is another huge hit in the Dallas food scene, and it's comprised of roasted chicken, avocado, dates, toasted almonds, goat cheese, and corn. You can't go wrong with either!

If you love toppings on your salad, the Hudson Salad is for you! With popcorn chicken, avocado, cherry tomatoes, bacon, sharp cheddar, and green goddess dressing, it's so delicious, you may even forget it's a salad you're eating. If you want something with a little different flavor, try the Beverly! Some of the delicious toppings include grilled shrimp, hearts of palm, and crispy shallots.
