Scottsdale's Famous Stetson Chopped Salad
Cowboy Ciao has been a staple on the dining scene since 1997, most notable for its Stetson Chopped Salad. The salad that inspired many (never as good) imitations is six equal parts Israeli couscous, chopped arugula, roma tomatoes, smoked salmon or grilled chicken, and crumbled Asiago with toasted pepitas, black currants and sweet dried corn. It’s all mixed tableside with a slightly citrus buttermilk pesto dressing. Even if you’re not a vegetarian, the Exotic Mushroom Pan Fry is a must with its ancho chile cream sauce. Another major highlight of Cowboy Ciao is the wine book with 60+ pages of varietals from places near and far.
