Salad Station, a new build-your-own salad restaurant, to open in Irving

This will be the franchise’s first location in Texas.

A new build-your-own salad spot is opening early next year in Irving.

Salad Station, which bills itself as a gourmet pay-by-the-pound salad franchise, will open in February at 7979 N. MacArthur Blvd., in a former nail salon.

The Hammond, Louisiana-based restaurant offers various greens, proteins, legumes, veggies, fruits and nuts.

Customers can choose from several salad bases, such as romaine, spring mix, spinach, kale and noodles.

Proteins include chicken, buffalo chicken, shrimp, ham, turkey, bacon, pepperoni, imitation crab and hard-boiled eggs. Legumes are edamame, garbanzo and black beans, and nuts include sliced almonds, pecans, sunflower seeds and peanuts.

Vegetables include marinated artichokes, hearts of palm, cut corn, roasted garlic, beets and mushrooms. Various cheeses, such as feta, blue, cheddar and parmesan, are available, and dressings include lemon vinaigrette, jalapeño ranch, sesame ginger and caesar.

Also on the menu are baked potatoes, yams, soups and chili.

Salad Station was founded in 2012 by Scott Henderson with his business partner and mom Cindy Henderson, according to a news release. The restaurant now has 26 locations in Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi and Arkansas.

The Irving location is the first in Texas and will be owned by Jeremy and Brittney Browning, a father and daughter duo who want to bring healthy food options to the Irving area.
