Normally when I think about a salad I think about a lettuce based salad but there are many kinds of salads and another common one is the chicken salad. A chicken salad is a salad made with a base of chicken that’s served in a dressing along with other ingredients and it can be enjoyed all by itself, in sandwiches, wrap, etc. This is a buffalo chicken wing inspired version where the chicken is in a buffalo hot sauce, cream cheese and mayonnaise dressing. Buffalo wings are often served with a side of carrot and celery sticks and they are incorporated into the salad in the form of shredded carrot and thinly sliced celery along with some sliced green onions. The wings are often dipped in a blue cheese dressing and so crumbled blue cheese is also included and I like to throw in some crispy bacon and shredded cheddar cheese! This buffalo chicken salad is great all by itself and I also enjoy serving it in sandwiches, wraps, and quesadillas!
