Buffalo Chicken for the Salad Crowd

I’ve said it more than once, so why not say it again?  If I can eat something healthy that feels like it’s not healthy, I’m in.  Absolutely in.  This Buffalo Ranch Chicken Salad from Half Baked Harvest definitely made that happen for me–delicious, not at all dry chicken with lots of good stuff coating every…
