- Romaine lettuce - I love using Romaine lettuce for that extra crisp. Sometimes I mix it with spinach for added nutrition.
- Shredded chicken - I typically just bake chicken breasts and then shred with forks. Super easy!
- Buffalo wing sauce - This buffalo sauce is my favorite and I put it on everything!
- Tomatoes - You can use whatever tomatoes you would like...Heirloom, grape, plum...all are great!
- Eggs - I use farm raised, organic eggs in this salad.
- Avocado - Definitely my favorite fruit! Avocados make the perfect addition to so many meals!
- Cucumber - Very light and crunchy, it wouldn't be a proper salad without cucumbers!
- Ranch dressing or Bleu Cheese dressing - My first choice will always be ranch dressing. Personally, I don't care for bleu cheese at all, in anything. I love this ranch dressing when I don't make it myself.
