Buffalo Chicken Taco Salad

Buffalo Chicken Taco Salad: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Taco salad is one of my favorite quick and easy, yet oh so yummy summer dinners. I never get tired of eating taco salad even though I make it the same way every time. But when I saw a different take on taco salad that incorporated a buffalo sauce, I knew it would be the perfect summer salad. Plus it would be a different taco salad to add the my summer salad rotation.
