Excellent use for leftover chicken! This salad adds the pop of the Buffalo sauce with the cool creamy ranch, blue cheese crumbles, and the crunch of the celery and carrot. It's your favorite wing night in a salad, so there's less guilt ... right?

  • Combine ranch dressing and hot sauce in a small bowl. Divide dressing equally between 5 wide-mouthed, quart-sized glass canning jars, forming the first layer. Add equal amounts of celery and carrots, forming the next 2 layers.

  • Place 3 ounces of chicken in each jar. Top chicken with 2 cups of salad greens in each jar. Place 1/4 cup blue cheese on top of salad greens. Seal and refrigerate jars until ready to use.

  • Divide croutons evenly into 5 small lidded containers. When ready to eat, dump jar contents and croutons into a bowl and toss.


Cook's Note:

Adjust the amount of hot sauce used to your liking. Make sure to pack the lettuce into the jar tightly to remove any air pockets. This will help ensure the salads stay fresh all week.
