The upscale salad mini chain Snappy Salads has been expanding with new branches in the suburbs, including Southlake and Plano. Now with five branches, the chain expands its menu with dishes that not only give it a more traditional restaurant mien but also a more manly mien.

Founder Chris Dahlander has devised a new section of appetizers and the addition of salads that feature, among other things, beef.

A new group of Shared Plates, also known as appetizers, include grilled artichokes with dipping sauce; bean dip with naan bread; edamame; and artichoke hearts with lemon aioli. There's also bread with a set of spreads such as olive butter, honey butter, garlic butter and olive oil with herbs.

But the big thing is the salads, which have more of a guy focus:

  • Bam Bam Salad. Quinoa, spinach, arugula, artisan mix, dried cherries, almonds, red onion, red cabbage and pulled chicken in a parsley vinaigrette
  • Speakeasy. Spinach, onion, pulled chicken, egg, mushroom, bacon brittle in a hot bacon dressing
  • Gaucho. (What a manly name!) Tenderloin, lettuce, udon noodle, tomato, cilantro, mint, peanut, savoy cabbage, mango and avocado.

From the release: "The Gaucho is sure to create an army of raving fanatics." Army: another manly word.
