The flavor of this Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad is completely and totally addicting! The tang and bite of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce come through with the toothsome pasta and has an absolutely amazing flavor!
I can always count on Dawn to have some amazing food ideas and recipes. Last night I asked my Facebook friends for different picnic side dishes than the norm. Grumpy and I are heading to the Saratoga Race Track today to attend an event sponsored by his workplace and we are to bring a dish to share.
Of course, Grumpy wants me to impress and he suggested I take something different from the normal macaroni or pasta salad. Here came Dawn to the rescue along with several other awesome ideas from other FB friends. I flew with Dawn’s because I love buffalo flavor and I have an addiction to Frank’s Red Hot sauce. Just the smell of it makes me swoon!
I made the salad first thing this morning along with a Chocolate Sheet Cake. I had to be safe and have something else ready that was tried and true just in case I messed up the salad! If you need a different pasta salad to take to a reunion, picnic, or just to eat at home alone, then definitely give this a try. Especially if you’re a wing fan. It’s not too spicy, has just a bit of a kick, and is different enough to impress!
If you haven’t seen Dawn’s blog, Vanilla Sugar Blog, then you should definitely take a trip over there and check it out. She always has amazing food, photos, and recipes. I also have to say she has recipes that are out of the ordinary that will blow you away and make you think “why didn’t I think of that?”.
