Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad

Many people have a “go-to” cold pasta salad dish. For most, it is some sort of Italian flavored salad. (Check out a good one here.) What about spicing up your next dinner with my Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad? My husband and friends absolutely loved it!

This time, I did not use bleu cheese in the recipe. However, I really enjoy it with bleu cheese.

  1. This looks delicious. I’m definitely going to make this.

    Do you add the cheese along with the chicken, or before?

  2. Absolutely wonderful. The hot sauce/mayo ratio was perfect, but I personally like more sauce… (Or I messed up on method). A hit!

  3. I made this for dinner recently, and my husband said that it needs to be a regular addition to our meals. It is delicious. I served it as the main dish, with peas for a side dish. Everything went together beautifully. I never would have thought to use Frank’s Hot Sauce in a pasta dish, so thank you for this recipe. Love it.
