Buffalo Chicken Salad Recipe

I love anything buffalo chicken, even in salad form. Honestly, I love a good salad recipe too. This buffalo chicken salad is simply delicious with blue cheese crumbles, hearty chicken, and creamy avocado dressing. Hearty salads like this Cobb Salad in a baked tortilla shell, and healthy salads like this shrimp salad with feta cheese are always fun to put on the weeknight menu. Of course, salad dressings like this homemade caesar dressing, and this copy-cat Outback Ranch dressing are great toppings on any salad.
