  • 1/2 recipe Buffalo Chicken Bites (Boneless Buffalo Wings)
  • 1 head romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1/2 c shredded carrots
  • 1/2 c shredded red cabbage
  • 2 stalks celery thinly sliced
  • 1/3 c crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1/2 english cucumber diced

Simple Red Wine Vinaigrette


  • Prepare the boneless buffalo chicken bites. Follow the recipe here, but cut the portion size in half.
  • While the chicken bites are browning, prepare the salad base. Toss the romaine lettuce, carrots, cabbage, celery, and blue cheese in a large bowl.
  • Combine the red wine vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper in a glass measuring cup or small bowl. Whisk until emulsified. Pour half the vinaigrette over the salad base and toss.
  • Layer the diced avocado, diced cucumber, and boneless buffalo chicken bites over the salad base. Serve immediately with additional dressing on the side.


For quick and easy prep, use pre-shredded carrots, pre-shredded red cabbage, and blue cheese crumbles.
