Buffalo Ranch Chicken Salad – The Lazy Way

I found this recipe on Pinterest:
http://www.thepinningmama.com/buffalo-ranch-chicken-salad-recipe-paleo-whole30-compliant/

and thought it sounded fantastic.  Because I had a lot going on, I didn’t want to spend a lot of time with the prep.  I did these swap outs, and it made the whole recipe incredibly simple. The result was fantastic, and there was more than I needed for a week’s worth of lunches.

  • 3 cups chicken breast, shredded or chopped
    • Substitute = 3 cans of chicken in water
  • 1½ cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • ½ cup green onions, chopped
  • ¼ sweet yellow onion, finely diced
    • Substitute = 2 small containers of mirepoix instead of the above veggies
  • ½ cup mayonnaise {homemade if you are Paleo or Whole30}
  • ¼ cup Franks Hot Sauce, original
    • Next time I will add more – It has flavor, but not much heat or kick with this much
  • 1 Tbsp Ranch Seasoning Mix {use this one if you are Paleo or Whole30}

Just follow the recipe, to mix the mayo, redhot and seasoning separately, so it will mix with the chicken and veggies well.

That’s it!
