Buffalo Chicken Finger Salad

It's no secret that we love buffalo chicken at our house! At least once a month we order a box of 20 buffalo chicken fingers from a little local place called Joe Rooster's.  It costs us about $20 (which includes a pint of ranch....we LOVE their ranch).  And then I usually bake some fries to go with them. And this is usually enough to feed us for 2 1/2 to 3 meals.

Now sometimes we'll eat a couple of meals, and we'll have 2 or 3 chicken fingers left. Obviously that's not enough to feed both of us, so we'll either make the fingers a part of our leftover buffet meal, or I'll chop them up and throw them into a salad.  Hubby likes a good salad, but when whenever he's dieting, salads get old really quick!  This way we get to combine his favorite food with something healthy. And everyone is happy!
For this salad, I used about half of bag of salad mix.  Then I chopped up my chicken, and topped it with ranch dressing.  Hubby also likes bleu cheese dressing sometimes.  And if you want a little more kick you can pour additional buffalo sauce over the salad. (I recommend Franks.)  This is also great for plain chicken fingers.  I like to top them with ranch or honey mustard!

Do you have a favorite salad? Got any strategies to add excitement to your salads? I'd love to hear your ideas!
