There is nothing better than a truly great salad that highlights the best and freshest produce and ingredients that Austin has to offer. Bring on the leafy greens, bright vegetables, juicy citruses, crunchy nuts, and all sorts of zingy dressings.
Here are Eater’s picks for the best salad destinations in Austin. These are no sad salad bar concoctions with mealy tomatoes and gloppy ranch dressing, though. Instead, these are complete meals bursting with lean protein, seasonal produce, and just the right amount of decadence.
Find great and filling salad concoctions from Kerbey Lane Cafe, nicoise salad at Hopfields, beloved drive-thru salad spot Baby Greens, New Mexico import Vinaigrette, kale wonders at Cafe No Se, seasonal ones at Better Half, and others.
As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurant themselves.
