Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad








It is so hot in Oklahoma!  Last week this was the 7 day forecast!  Can you believe it?   I seriously think we live in hell.....



One way I've been beating the heat is to make cold pasta salads for dinner. A few weeks ago I posted my Mediterranean Tuna Pasta Salad and now I've got a new Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad.  It's absolutely yummy and very addictive!   I like to pour some extra buffalo sauce on top before serving to
kick up the spice even more.   To make it even more special you can sprinkle some crumbled blue cheese chunks on top.  You will like it so much you will be fighting over the leftovers like my husband and I did.  Sadly, I have to report that he won......(insert sad face here).

  1. The whole meal on that plate looks delicious. And we've been only a very small bit cooler than you guys. I hear that this week OUR temps might drop down to 68 and our high tomorrow might be 80....after the past few weeks I think I might need a jacket for 80!

  2. It's hard to believe the weather we're having and I fear it may get worse. You are becoming the queen of pasta salad and this looks like another I'll have to try.
