I've visited multiple locations and each one had delicious salads with fresh ingredients. I'm particularly fond of their Chick-Cado salad, made with mixed baby greens, jicama, cucumber, radish, grilled chicken, avocado and spicy chipotle ranch dressing topped with crispy tortilla strips. It was an explosion of flavor!

Their other salads are just as excellent – from the Classic Caesar to the Southwest Kale – every single one is so tasty that it's hard to pick a favorite. The dressings are flavorful and not too overpowering.

I also appreciate their vegan options like the Tofu & Tempeh Power Bowl. They provide great variety which is always appreciated. HS Green also has a great selection of sides and drinks in case you're looking for something more than a salad.

Overall, I highly recommend HS Green if you're looking for some of the best salads in Houston. Your taste buds will thank you!

Their salads are packed with fresh ingredients, flavorful components and creative dressings. I particularly enjoy their Mango Cashew Quinoa salad that is made with mint, scallions, roasted sweet potatoes, baby spinach, kale and topped with a zesty honey-lime dressing.

The flavor combinations of each of their dishes are bold yet delicious and many components are locally sourced. I also appreciate the variety of vegetarian options they have on the menu!

The service at Mendocino Farms is always friendly and efficient which adds to my overall dining experience there.

I've had the pleasure of trying their various salads, and each one has been truly amazing. The ingredients are always fresh and thoughtfully put together, and the flavors just burst in your mouth! I especially love their Kale Guacamole salad, which pairs together two of my favorite things: kale and guacamole! The Earth Bowl is also full of deliciousness, with quinoa, sweet potato and avocado for an enjoyable crunchy yet tender mix.

I'm always on the lookout for fresh ingredients, creative combinations, and tasty dressings - and bellagreen ticks all those boxes. The salads have been consistently flavorful and filling. From their Chipotle Butternut Squash Salad with roasted butternut squash and quinoa to their Lemon Spinach & Arugula Salad with dried cranberries, feta cheese, and walnuts, every item I've had has been enjoyable.

The standout feature of bellagreen is definitely the dressings. They've got unique flavors like Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette and Cilantro Lime Ranch that bring their salads to the next level. And to top it off, the portion sizes are generous - perfect for a light lunch or dinner!

On the downside, some of the salads can be quite expensive; prices for some items reach close to $10 - which isn't ideal if you're looking for a cheap meal. Additionally, everything at bellagreen needs to be ordered to-go due to limited seating.

Overall, I highly recommend bellagreen if you're looking for one of Houston's best salads. Their combination of flavor, quality ingredients, and tasty dressings make it worth checking out!

The salads are huge and have a great variety of topping flavors. I especially love the southwestern salad, which includes black beans, corn, and diced tomatoes. The portions are always quite generous and it tastes like they freshly prepare each one.

I also appreciate the freshness of the ingredients used in their salads. They source all of their produce locally which helps to ensure that I am getting the best quality product possible.
