Buffalo Chicken Salad with Homemade Low Fat Spicy Ranch

We love buffalo chicken wings at our house!  Thank goodness that football season doesn't last all year because my jeans don't love them!  Tossing grilled chicken in buffalo sauce fills my craving for spicy chicken and still fit in my jeans.
Ingredients:
Salad
  • Lettuce- I like to use Iceberg or Romaine
  • Tomato
  • Red Onion
  • Grilled Chicken cut into strips
  • Blue Cheese Crumbles
  • Shredded Carrot
  • Diced Celery
  • Your Favorite Buffalo or Hot Sauce
  • Red or Yellow Bell Pepper
Low Fat Spicy Ranch Dressing
  • A Couple Dashes of Cayenne Pepper (add more or less depending on how spicy you want it)
  • 1 Wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
  • 2-3 Tablespoons of Skim Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons of Fat Free Sour Cream
Combine all dressing ingredients in small food processor for about 10 seconds.  Place in container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Toss chicken in buffalo sauce and place on top of lettuce.  Add desired amount of remaining salad ingredients.  Since the homemade ranch is almost fat free, I like to serve with additional carrots and celery for dipping because the spicy ranch is so yummy!
