Buffalo Chicken Salad

I have a slight obsession with Buffalo Chicken.  Not only wings, but salads, flavor, etc.  My brother found a delicious Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip which is so delicious!  My mom keeps everything on hand to whip it up quick whenever a hankering occurs.  So it shouldn't surprise anyone that I have several Buffalo Chicken recipes to try including sliders (in the crock-pot!) and Buffalo Cauliflower (a healthy and vegetarian option!) plus this cold salad was on the list!

This salad is made healthier with the use of Greek plain yogurt rather than mayo or cream cheese.  I didn't miss it, and neither did my mom who I reluctantly shared this salad with.  Thankfully, the hubby could care less about this flavor which means more for me!

Buffalo Chicken Salad

Makes 4 servings

1 pound chicken breast, cooked and shredded
2 oz ranch dressing
2 oz plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup your favorite hot wing sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup carrots, chopped
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Serve with crackers, on a wrap, with a spoon, etc.
Adding both carrots and celery is an option.  If you don't like carrots then double the celery or vice versa.  I love both so I had both.

Is there a specific ingredient or flavor that you are obsessed with and would try any way, even a healthy way?  I'd love to hear them!
