CEiMB: Buffalo Chicken Salad


Time flies when you're having fun: another Thursday had arrived and I'm happy it did, 'cause that means it's time for Craving Ellie in My Belly!!

This week AJM from You Eat Now got to pick the recipe, she selected Buffalo Chicken Salad. The recipe can be found here.

I must admit, when I saw the list of ingredients I had some doubts about this recipe. You see I love hot sauce and I love blue cheese, but simply couldn't imagine that those two would taste good when combined in one recipe.

Boy, did Elly prove me wrong!!! I decided to make this salad as a side dish with some great pasta with broccoli and cheesesauce (recipe will follow tomorrow) and served it yesterday when a friend came over for diner. We loved it! The dressing is perfect: the taste of the blue cheese (I used gorgonzola) is not too strong and the chicken is a great addition! Yum! Another recipe that I'll be making again!

Ow.... Only 3 WW Points per serving and about 1,5 for the side dish!! By the way, so far I lost 4 kilos in one month :) And if you would like to join CEiMB, go check out this site!

I laughed when I read this post. My husband is Danish and he used to always think my choice of flavor combinations were strange. On the other hand, I always thought his curried pickled herring on Danish sour rye sounded disgusting, but it has actually grown on me :-)

That looks delicious Marthe! I need to cook from my book more!

Thanks for telling me the WW points. I've been slacking there and it's time for me to get back on the wagon. Glad you enjoyed the salad!

Great job with the weight loss this week. I am trying myself as well. I really liked this salad and will have to try it with gorgonzola cheese next time. I normally do not like bleu, but it was good with this salad.

I had the same doubts about the recipe as a whole, but thought it turned out great! The salad, chicken and blue cheese dressing all mixed together perfectly. I will definitely be making this recipe again.

That is so funny that you were doubtful about this recipe. I guess the combination is truly an American thing, it is so commonplace here. Your salad looks great, glad you enjoyed it!

Blue cheese + hot sauce = WIN!

I really liked this one too. We ate it as an entree but now that I think about it, this would be perfectly suited for a side or an app. as is.

Looks good!
