If you love Buffalo sauce like I do, try my Buffalo Chicken Salad. Packed full of Buffalo Chicken, lettuce, jalapeño pepper, green pepper, cherry tomatoes, Mexican shredded cheese and lime. You can add or remove any of the vegetables to make it to your own liking. There is so much flavor in the Buffalo Chicken it really doesn’t need a salad dressing, however, top it off with Ranch Dressing for even more flavor.
