Sala and Betty: Locally Sourced Salads and Sandwiches

July 24, 2017 12:00 pm

The family that owns Sala and Betty knows firsthand how difficult it can be to start up a local business with only elbow grease and a dream. That's why they seek to support other small local businesses in everything they do. This includes sourcing their ingredients from farms around Austin.

Sala and Betty's team builds relationships with the local farmers and ranchers in order to bring the best ingredients to your meal. Start with a light salad, such as the organic greens salad, which showcases a colorful medley of beets, pine nuts, goat cheese, and lemon-basil vinaigrette. Save some room for a fully loaded sandwich, like the Mister T. It's stuffed with smoked wagyu sirloin, avocado aioli, mixed greens, and blue cheese sauce—plus fries. The signature Sala showcases smoked chicken, mixed greens, cilantro, mint yogurt, and fries, so be sure to find out which sandwich is your favorite at Sala and Betty!
