Buffalo Chicken Arugula Salad

Updated: Sep 13, 2023

Not going to lie, if I could have buffalo chicken everyday I would. I used @primalkitchenfoods Buffalo Sauce with Avocado Oil to make this incredible salad and if you’re ever in the mood for buffalo chicken and want a healthier way to eat it, this is the meal for you. Let’s get to it.

Yields: 1

Prep time: 30 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes

- If you don't have chicken breast cooked already, it will take 30 minutes or so to properly cook. Otherwise, this salad took me 15 minutes to make.

This recipe is dairy free and gluten free.



1. Shredded chicken breast

2. @primalkitchenfoods Buffalo sauce

3. 1 carrot

4. 1 celery stalk

5. 1 green onion

6. ¼ yellow bell pepper (red, orange, green works too)

7. Arugula

8. ½ cucumber

9. Hemp seeds

10. Extra virgin olive oil

11. Salt

12. Black pepper, onion powder

13. Dijon mustard

14. ½ lemon

15. ¼ cup of cooked quinoa

Replacement suggestion: Feel free to use regular buffalo sauce for this recipe!



1. First, add your 1-2 handfuls of arugula to a bowl.

2. Next, finely dice your carrot, celery, bell pepper, green onion, and cucumber. Add to the bowl.

3. Now in a separate bowl, add some shredded chicken and add as much Buffalo sauce as you want. Sprinkle on ¼ TSP of onion powder. Mix well. Add to the salad.

4. Add the quinoa.

5. Now for the dressing: in a separate bowl, add ½ TSP of Dijon mustard and dilute it with a splash of water. Mix well. Add 1 TBSP of olive oil, ½ lemon, a dash of salt and black pepper for taste and mix well.

6. Pour onto the salad. Mix well.

7. Sprinkle on 1/2 TBSP of hemp seeds

8. Enjoy!
