I’ve said it before and I will say it again. I love spicy food ! Nothing is better then a nice order of buffalo wings! Recently my girlfriend and I started tying to eat more healthy, so I’ve been searching for healthy alternatives to some of our favorite foods. Here is a great recipe for a Buffalo-style chicken salad along with a recipe for low fat blue cheese salad dressing. I hope you enjoy!
