Knock it out of the park at dinner with this composed salad recipe inspired by the crazy-popular Stetson Chopped Salad at Cowboy Ciao in Scottsdale, Arizona. It packs in colorful vegetables and a variety of textures from whole grains, seeds and a creamy homemade dressing for a photo-worthy, healthy meal. Keep it vegetarian or add smoked salmon or roasted chicken.

  • Spread arugula on a serving platter. Add the couscous, corn, tomatoes, avocado, pepitas and currants in decorative lines over the arugula.

  • Combine basil, buttermilk, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a mini food processor or blender; pulse until smooth. Top the salad with the dressing just before serving.

Tips

Tips: Look for Israeli couscous (sometimes called "pearl couscous" because of its larger granules) near other couscous or pasta in well-stocked supermarkets.
