Easy Buffalo Chicken Grain Salad

Here’s another recipe with one of my favorites– creamy buffalo chicken. I can’t stop building meals out of this stuff– because it makes EVERYTHING amazing. This easy buffalo chicken grain salad is no exception.

Since my creamy buffalo chicken recipe will make much more than you need for this salad, use it in tacos, wraps, bowls, and crunchwraps all week. You’re welcome. THEN— feel free to freeze the rest for later. I just freeze in a large ziplock and pull out when we need it back in our lives!

I have several creamy buffalo chicken recipes floating around. Here’s one for my healthy creamy buffalo chicken pizza. Here’s a buffalo chicken sandwich… but you get it. It’s fool-proof.

How to Make Your Easy Buffalo Chicken Grain Salad

Give your mixed greens a quick toss and then put them at the bottom of your bowl. Next, add your cabbage and mix in 1 tablespoon of the dressing. My favorite dressings to pair with this is either the Jalapeno Avocado Dressing or Cilantro Lime Ranch. 

Before you start layering, you can do a little prep by cooking your brown rice, halving your cherry tomatoes, and chopping your avocado and celery. 

Now it’s time to add in all the goodness. Place your cooked brown rice, creamy buffalo chicken, blue cheese and all the veggies on top. Don’t forget your pickled onions! These are super quick to make and super worth it. 

Drizzle the rest of your dressing and top it off with a pinch of fresh cilantro and a splash of Frank’s RedHot Sauce. Enjoy!
