buffalo chicken salad

This buffalo chicken salad looks SO good to me.  I'm thinking of making this tonight for our date night dinner with a few alterations along with homemade French onion soup.  I found the recipe on Pinterest.  There are so many amazing recipes on there!
Doesn't this look amazing?!
 Here we go! 

  • 1 head Romaine, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup matchstick cut carrots
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 4 slices crispy bacon, chopped
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise to make thin cutlets
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper
  • your favorite hot sauce or wing sauce
  • homemade blue cheese dressing recipe (I'm not going to use this dressing - we prefer ranch)

      Blue Cheese Dressing Ingredients:
      • 1/2 cup sour cream
      • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
      • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
      • 1 clove grated garlic
      • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
      • a drop or two of Worcestershire sauce

          1. Preheat grill or skillet. Add bacon and cook until crispy. Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and paprika. Remove bacon when done. Add chicken to the same skillet and cook until done.

          2. Prepare salad by adding romaine, celery, tomatoes, carrots, blue cheese and cooked bacon to a large bowl.

          3. When chicken is done, slice and add to a large bowl. Toss with hot sauce. Add to salad. Add all ingredients for blue cheese dressing to a bowl and mix well. Drizzle dressing on salad and serve.
