Snappy Salads Briargrove is located on Fountain View just south of San Felipe. If you are looking for the freshest salads west of the Mississippi… then look no further. Not only does Snappy Salads have wonderful salads, but the wraps and handmade Soups are nothing less than spectacular!!!
When you walk through the door at Snappy Salads, you are always welcomed with a smile. The beautiful design of this fast-casual restaurant is amazing. You instantly know you are at the right place when you see nothing but green. The glass panel window provides you with a quick view of all the fresh ingredients you have to choose from. That’s right, you can pick from any one of their menu salads or choose your own. Ha! I like that!
Snappy Salads has a nice selection of menu salads, wraps and handmade soups. When I enjoyed my first visit, I took some friends so we could try a little bit of everything… you know how I do it! We ordered the Bam Bam Salad, Cobb Salad, Grilled Avocado Salad, Texas Taco Salad, Yellow Fin Tuna Salad and each enjoyed a Yummy Lemon Cookie to finish it off. Of course, everything was wonderful, but my two favorites were the Cobb Salad and the Grilled Avocado Salad.
Now, if you’ve been following me for any length of time, then you know I have a deep love for salads… I try to enjoy one at every meal. Just in case you didn’t know, the Cobb Salad was created over 80 years ago and it is one of my very favorites. The Cobb Salad at Snappy Salads was as good as any one I have ever tasted. This beauty was built with iceberg and romaine lettuce, tomato, egg, bacon, green onion, gorgonzola and mesquite-grilled all-natural chicken. Is that something you would be interested in? If you are into the Cobb, I highly recommend you get this incredible salad.
Next, I was told that the Grilled Avocado Salad was Snappy Salad’s number one seller. Nobody had to sell me on ordering this avocado avalanche. After living in Southern California for such a long time, I have grown very fond of this green grenade. As a matter of fact, I have been known to eat them like an apple. The Grilled Avocado Salad consists of red leaf and iceberg lettuce, black bean/poblano/corn relish, grilled avocado and thick-sliced tomato. To be honest with you, I kind of horded this one from my fellow foodies. I always grab this salad when visiting Snappy Salads. I have found you can get several salads anywhere, but this is the first time I’ve tasted this combination, so I take advantage of it every time I visit.
I have ventured out to many fast-casual, build your own salad spots across the southwest, but Snappy Salads here in Houston tops them all. If you are looking for fresh ingredients, wonderful wraps or healthy handmade soups, I recommend you give them a shot. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!
