I believe the answer is

Hair (and its homophones)

It eats lots of salad,

Hares and rabbits like eating lettuce and other greenery.

..lives right under your noses.

A moustache is pretty hairy (and a nod to @Phylyp!)

"An Austrian husband?" the Fraulein supposes.

An Austrian (or other German-speaking) man is a Herr.

It's in a shy airport;

The word is hidden in a "shy airport", and also one of the world's major airports is Chicago O'Hare

things like to run through it.

People run their fingers through their hair. Other people and animals have insects running through theirs.

Quit scratching your head;

You'll mess your hair up if you do

I know you can do it!

You can "do" your hair or get a good " 'do" at the hairdresser's.

    $\begingroup$ That sounds really appropriate! A bunch of rot13(ubzbalzf). Well done! $\endgroup$ – Phylyp Jun 17 '18 at 14:45

    $\begingroup$ Pretty good. Can you find a specific "shy airport?" Maybe there's a missing apostrophe in the last line? $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Jun 17 '18 at 17:24

    $\begingroup$ Likely rot13(B'Uner) for the specific airport, @IanF1 $\endgroup$ – Phylyp Jun 17 '18 at 17:26
  • $\begingroup$ @Chowzen just spotted what you meant by the apostrophe too! $\endgroup$ – IanF1 Jun 17 '18 at 17:47

I might be interpreting this waaaay too literally, but are you:

A MOUSTACHE

It eats lots of salad,

A large bushy moustache is liable to catch food

lives right under your noses.

Yep, right on the upper lip

"An Austrian husband?" the Fraulein supposes.

I can only think of one infamous Austrian and his style of moustache

It's in a shy airport;

The nostrils are an air port, an opening for air

things like to run through it.

Combs are used to groom a moustache

    $\begingroup$ I like the "airport" idea, but [those] are totally "in-your-face" rather than shy! :) The correct answer will find the 4th line to be more than just filler. $\endgroup$ – Chowzen Jun 17 '18 at 11:59
  • $\begingroup$ Aah, so that's a nice clue about the 4th line! @Chowzen $\endgroup$ – Phylyp Jun 17 '18 at 12:10
