Best New Iowa State Fair Food!

Thank you to everyone who voted for the Cluck’n Coop’s “Chicken Egg Salad with Indian Fry Bread” as the top new Iowa State Fair Food! WE WON! 

The dish is a mash-up of chicken and egg salads, this protein-packed mixture includes celery, cranberries and toasted pecans and is served over warm fry bread or chips. It’s finished with a nice kick from a heap of cabbage slaw, bacon-tomato aioli, fresh cilantro and smoked paprika.
