Just kidding! (sorta)

Curate your favorite guides, events, deals, and more with our new Collections feature, available exclusively on the UNATION mobile app.

You can enjoy filling, delicious, and nutritious salads in Austin no matter the weather! They pair perfectly in the Summertime. Especially since it can get extremely hot out, something light but filling will work best as you tan by the pool. However, salads are also great in cooler weather. Keep it fresh and green when you need a break from bulking. Check out some of our favorite spots that offer these yummy, fresh bites!

MAD Greens - South Austin

Mad Greens has loads of salad options and we’d love to try them all. Honestly, “pasta salads” are also a thing and we’re here for it!

In case you are in the mood for something sweet, grab yourself the Vibrant Venus. You’ll love the combination of spinach, grilled chicken, yummy strawberries, praline pecans, goat cheese, and red onions, with balsamic vinaigrette! We’ve also got our eyes on the Edgar Allan Poe and Strawberry Cooler juice.

Pro Tip: Grab some healthy snacks like the Roasted Red Pepper Hummus or Cowboy Caviar to keep around for those midnight snack cravings!

The Front Page

If you’re looking for a super chill spot to grab a cocktail, fresh-baked bread, and a salad to feel healthy, then this place is for you. The Front Page is a friendly Springdale pub that offers delicious food and fun trivia nights too! We’d recommend the Salad Sandy Combo. Grab yourself a Southern Italian‘Nick The Greek’ Salad, and wash it down with a glass or bottle of Benvolio.

Stop by for Happy Hour from 3-7pm, Monday through Friday for $3 domestic tallboys and well drinks. Grab some $6 Irish Nachos before you devour that salad!

Even though it’s called Sweetgreen they make a mean salad. Sweetgreen will have you coming back multiple times a week because it’s THAT good. Luckily there’s many locations around Austin for you to get your fix from. I am obsessed with this salad… all their new bowl, the Melissa Wood bowl. They orchestrate to produce a symphony of flavors and textures for your mouth…all whilst being healthy and good for you.
