State & Allen

When you hear the word “salad,” what words come to mind?


Are you delighted? Does your mouth start to water? Or do you begin to breakout in cold sweats at the thought of it as a meal?


Most people find the idea of a salad for dinner completely underwhelming, and State & Allen can relate. That’s why we’ve created a menu of salad entrees that are creative, delicious, and filling. Try any one of these 3 standout salads today and you’ll begin to change your view on a salad for dinner:


·     Warm Spinach & Chicken Paillard Salad: Fresh spinach leaves are just barely wilted, then topped with wild mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, red peppers, purple-hulled peas, pine nuts, and juicy chicken. Sprinkled with a little goat cheese and a house Balsamic dressing, this salad is sure to take the chill off a cold January day.


·     Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna Salad: Looking for something with an Asian flare? Give the Ahi tuna salad a try. Napa cabbage, cucumbers, radish, jicama, and spiced peanuts are topped with seared Ahi tuna and drizzled with Miso Peanut Vinaigrette. It’s a show-stopping salad you won’t want to miss!


·     State & Allen’s Famous Silver Bowl Salad – “The Original:" It’s by far the most popular salad at State & Allen and it’s easy to see why. It’s chock full of goodness that will leave you full and satisfied! Spicy chicken, grapes, oranges, red bell peppers, and bacon bits are served on a bed of chopped romaine, then drizzled with TWO of our favorite dressings – Balsamic vinaigrette and Caesar. A must for anyone new to State & Allen!


Any of our Dallas salad entrees can be fully customized, and it’s easy to add or substitute avocado, shrimp, Portobello mushroom, or chicken on any of our salads.
