Hope your having a great start to the weekend! I got my hair done, and realized how damaged my hair is. Coloring is the worse thing, don’t do it! My hair dresser suggested I purchase a new hair dryer because mine is burning my hair! Eck!!! Guess I know my big buy for the weekend is.
Ready for tonights meal? It’s one of my favorites! Being from Buffalo, I love chicken wings and spicy food! Franks Hot Sauce is the best!! What does the commercial say? ”I put that sh!t on everything”! Yup, I do!! Franks is what the Pizzeria’s use to make there Buffalo Wings, well I’m using it to make my Buffalo Chicken Salad! So simple, so tasty, so low on calories!!!
Now make sure you make enough ingredients, for the next recipe!
Looks good doesn’t it? He he, tastes good too!!! Ok, Here’s the recipe for the salad!
Buffalo Chicken Salad – Serves 4

2 Tbs.of Franks Hot Sauce or what ever your favorite hot sauce is
