For most folks when we are on the hunt for a quick inexpensive lunch or dinner that usually means something unhealthy like fast food! I am nearing 30 (tear) and my body no longer considers fast food as food, so that means I have had to find some new staples.  One of my go to places for quick, cheap and healthy is the salad bar Salata! I discovered this place a few years back while living in the Energy Corridor when they only had a few locations.  I looked up a few years later and Salata had expanded to every mall in Houston and a million shopping centers.  All the more convenient for me.

Here are a few things that stand about Salata for me as opposed to other salad bars

  1. They do not weigh your salad so you can pile on your toppings a mile high
  2. They offer a lot of meats Several types of chicken, shrimp, salmon, turkey. You name it they have it!
  3. For non meat eaters like my dad, they offer plenty of proteins like beans.  You can really load your salad up with filling non meat items.
  4. They have great wraps! That is usually what I go for.  I have even replicated their wraps at home. Croutons and all

There are all the pictures from the different components of the salad bar.

This time, my sister and I made a quick stop to the location in the Galleria mall food court.  Funny story, the first time I took her to Salata, she snapped at me for taking her to a “salad bar” when she was hungry. HA! Now she goes there more often than me.  On this visit, we were there on a slow day. Most of their locations have lines out the door during lunch time.   I keep my salads simple, while my sister really gets her $10 bucks worth by getting every topping they have to offer.  I went for the a wrap with pesto chicken and a side of pita chips on this trip.   It was good per usual.
