This Buffalo Ranch Chicken Salad recipe came about because we didn’t have much to eat one day and I threw a bunch of things together and it tasted amazing!

I like that it uses up that little bit of leftover chicken we usually have after we have a roasted chicken dinner the night before. We like to roast a chicken each week so we usually have leftovers to use up and this salad is the perfect way to do that!

All of the other ingredients are easy to have on hand in the fridge or freezer so that you can make this recipe in a snap.

For the kids, I like to put everything into a wrap since salads aren’t quite their thing yet. I hope they develop the taste for a good salad as they get older since they’ve watched their parents eating them so often.

You can make this Buffalo Ranch Chicken salad recipe to-go style and put it into a jar or you can make it fresh and eat it in a bowl or on a plate. It stays fresh in the jar for up to 5 days so you can make it on the weekend or ahead of time and enjoy it a few days later.
