The Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce welcomed Snappy Salads’ sixth North Texas location to Irving-Las Colinas on Tuesday, April 29.

At the Irving Chamber’s ribbon-cutting, Snappy Salads Owner Chris Dahlander told guests he created Snappy Salads as a healthier dining option. Dahlander, who is a Eagle Scout, told ribbon-cutting guests he wanted his restaurant to be eco-friendly. All Snappy Salads’ take-out containers, cups and utensils are biodegradable.

Snappy Salads’ Irving-Las Colinas restaurant features long gathering tables and chairs made from reclaimed wood salvaged from a East Dallas church build in the 1920s. The countertops are made of recycled porcelain, beer and wine bottles and the lighting is low-voltage LED running on less than 350 watts. The Irving-Las Colinas restaurant also features an outdoor patio with lighting and music.

Snappy Salads is located just north of Tuscan Drive on MacArthur Boulevard between State Highway 114 and State Highway 161. Snappy Salads in Irving-Las Colinas is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Online and call-ahead ordering is available.
