Buffalo Chicken Salad

Delicious, and even better—quick! This buffalo chicken salad is a summer staple at our house. Sometimes we cook the chicken on the grill, then sprinkle the hot sauce over it with the dressing, because you've gotta have that kick! —Cori Cooper, Flagstaff, Arizona

    Simple and easy recipe with lots of flavor. I recommend using the brand name sauce, though.
