- Make up a batch of my super easy Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken
- Chop up your favorite lettuce – I like a mixture of romaine and red leaf
- Add your choice of toppings – I like carrots, celery, corn and cucumber for tons of crunch
- Sprinkle with blue cheese
- Dress with ranch dressing, or blue cheese dressing if you prefer. My favorite brand to use is Litehouse which you can find in the produce section fridge.
How to Prep a Buffalo Chicken Salad:
I prefer chopping up the veggies ahead of time and storing in my produce saver containers.
Grab a big bowl and start by layering up a few handfuls or cups of lettuce and then toppings.
Top it all off with a drizzle of dressing (or pack the dressing separately if making ahead).
- If prepping ahead, store veggies in separate containers for best results
- You can assemble the salad the morning before and take along
- Don’t add dressing until ready to serve
