Little Greek Restaurant

There are few things that beat the perfectly synchronized flavors of a Greek salad with its zesty Kalamata olives, tart feta cheese, ripe tomatoes, and spicy pepperoncinis. Little Greek does the home country justice, serving salads just like mama used to make. Get one topped with gyro meat for a fully satisfying meal.

Super Chix

Sometimes diners want to eat right, but their kids want chicken fingers. Super Chix delivers on both. Grab one of its huge, shiny silver bowls filled with fresh greens, mandarin oranges, nuts, and crisp veggies topped with juicy grilled (okay, fried) chicken.

Haystack Burgers And Barley

Diners may be tempted to order a burger and fries at Haystack, which is completely normal and understandable. However, those who think outside the box pick the Picnic Salad with dried cherries, spiced pecans, swiss cheese, and bacon, tossed in balsamic vinaigrette (with the option to add chicken). For another popular bet, try the Haystack Salad with fried chicken, avocado, tomatoes, bacon and cheddar, plus crispy and addictive Haystack onions.

Fans of Asian chopped salads will love the Ahi Tuna Salad with its crunchy mix of vegetables, avocado, edamame, and tangy ginger vinaigrette topped with sesame-crusted ahi tuna. Salads come in half or whole portions too, so there’s an option to save room for dessert.

Hillstone Restaurant

Sometimes there exists a bowl of greens so good, it’s worth a wait. One such instance is at Hillstone in Preston Center. The grilled chicken salad is full of satisfyingly crunchy ingredients like jicama, tortilla strips, and julienned carrots, then topped with a savory peanut sauce and a delectable honey-lime vinaigrette.

Flower Child

Diners with special diets rejoice. Flower Child was basicially created for the vegans, vegetarians, pescetarians, and gluten-free guys and gals (or with any other food restriction you could think of in mind). The menu consists of mainly bowls and salads, plus wraps and soups, all with a goal of healthy, happy eating. Try the chopped vegetable salad with a sustainable salmon topper.

Pie Tap is best known for its delicious pizzas, but don’t sleep on the expertly chopped salad with its buttermilk-doused lettuce, corn, tomatoes, and cheese integrated into every bite. A perfectly crisped milanese-style chicken breast is served alongside for a satisfying duo.

Unleavened Fresh Kitchen

This Lakewood salad and wrap spot has so many stellar salads, diners could likely eat here a few times a week without getting bored. And since kids happen to eat free after 3:00 p.m. daily, it’s not the worst idea. Try one of 10 incredible options like the signature “Unleavened” salad with ingredients like currants, golden raisins, celery, and chia, to complement the chicken salad on top.

Sprezza

Another spot perfectly geared for delicious salads is Sprezza. Try octopus and pickled peppers on micro greens, or their version of a chopped salad with salumi, pecorino toscano, egg, olives, and beets. Diners who’ve chosen healthy options can justify rewarding themselves with a side of fried olives from the appetizer section, they can’t be missed.

CBD Provisions

Copy Link

It’s hard to find a misstep at CBD Provisions. While the menu offerings rotate seasonally, anything called “salad” here is a sure fire bet. The delicate leaves of the little gem lettuce are light and crispy, and this season, CBD tops them with lumb crab and cornbread croutons on the dinner menu. For a lunch option the kale, sprouts, and broccoli, topped with lemon-agave dressing is healthy and delish. Or go with a chopped salad featuring blue cheese, ranch dressing, and fried chicken for an extra indulgence.

Americano

Copy Link

Dining al fresco with a glass of vino and a salad just feels right when the weather is nice. Italian-themed Americano adds a side of people watching in bustling Downtown. Try the shaved cauliflower salad with pistachios and golden raisins, diners can add chicken, albacore tuna, or shrimp to make it a meal.

Salad lovers can’t go wrong at the Porch. There’s a handful of fantastic selections to enjoy al fresco on the patio including a traditional Greek salad topped with grilled shrimp, or the popular roasted chicken & hydro greens mix topped with apples, candied pecans, blue cheese crumbles, and tossed in a honey-sherry vinaigrette. For those who want to indulge, the fried chicken cobb is oh-so-amazing with its tangy honey mustard dressing.

White Rock Alehouse & Brewery

After biking around White Rock, stop into the Alehouse (accessible via the Santa Fe trail) for a refreshing cocktail flight and a hydrating salad. There are several solid options, and the Spinnaker featuring baby spinach and sundried tomatoes goes down real smooth with its salty bacon and feta cheese counterbalanced by a slightly sweet raspberry vinaigrette.

Wheelhouse

Did someone ask for the best cobb salad in Dallas? Wheelhouse delivered with a bowl of greens that are smothered in a tangy buttermilk dressing, and topped with chicken, tomato, bacon, avocado, egg, and blue cheese crumbles. This salad is so delightfully rich, it’s a meal on its own.
