This substantial and spicy salad has all the flavors of your favorite buffalo wings. Chicken tenderloins cook up juicy and tender in a matter of minutes. Just toss them with your favorite hot sauce—try Frank's Red Hot or Cholula here—and serve warm as a nice contrast to the cool salad greens. If blue cheese isn't your favorite, try this with another reduced-fat dressing, such as ranch or caesar instead. Toss in some chopped fresh herbs to boost the fresh flavor factor. Chopped fresh parsley, tarragon, basil, or cilantro would all be wonderful in this mix.
