UGH, what a morning. I’ll spare you all the gory details but let’s just say I fainted for the first time ever and was crying in my bed. So, that’s why this post is 15353535 hours late. But don’t worry! I’m totally fine now. I’m just taking it easy on the couch. And you know I couldn’t possibly go a weekend without sharing this buffalo chicken macaroni salad recipe. Because buffalo chicken is LEGIT.
I just love buffalo sauce. I would drink it if the thought alone didn’t send me into convulsions and give me ulcers in my belly. I just don’t understand how a sauce can be SO good. However, it’s usually paired with less than healthy things like wings and blue cheese so I don’t enjoy it as much as I’d like. Well, that was until I made this salad. Now I’m going to make it every day and turn into a bright orange macaroni noodle before you know it.
You’re going to love me because this salad is SO low fat. There is less than 5 grams of fat PER 1/2 cup. I know, you want to kiss me. Which, after the morning I’ve had, I totally would appreciate. This allows all of the buffalo chicken lovers out there to enjoy their favorite without giving up their skinny jeans or their non-flowy tops.
Besides making the best weeknight meal ever, wouldn’t this salad be PERF for the Super Bowl? No need for high fat wings when you have this by your side! Just don’t put it near you or you’ll end up eating the whole bowl which will make you have to make another bowl for your husband who you promised a buffalo chicken salad for. NOT like that happened with me, duh. Of course not. I know moderation here folks.
