Buffalo Chicken Dill Pickle Salad


Looking for an easy way to add a bold kick of protein to your Taylor Farms Dill Pickle Chopped Salad Kit? Why not throw in some buffalo chicken? The salad kit is a blend of fresh cauliflower, radish, red cabbage, green cabbage, green leaf lettuce, kale, dill pickle crouton crumbles, and dill pickle ranch dressing—and it provides the perfect backdrop for a heaping portion of zesty buffalo chicken. 

And to make things even easier, we recommend grabbing a rotisserie chicken while you’re at the store stocking up on your favorite Chopped Salad Kits. All you need to do is shred, toss, and top! If only everything was this simple. 




  1. Shred the rotisserie chicken into a medium bowl. Allow to marinate in buffalo sauce for at least 5 minutes.
  2. Assemble your salad kit with toppings and dressing, top with buffalo chicken, and enjoy!


A Buffalo Invented a Sauce?

Buffalo sauce doesn’t really need an introduction. This incredibly versatile, culinary-world-changing hot sauce is a simple mixture of cayenne pepper, vinegar, butter, and perhaps a few other choice seasonings. And yes, it happens to go perfectly with chicken. 

Okay, buffalo sauce obviously didn’t come from a buffalo (that we know of), so what is its origin story? It can all be traced back to Buffalo, New York, during the very eventful year of 1964. As the story goes, the legendary sauce was created by Teressa Bellissimo, the owner of the Anchor Bar. One night, she was looking for a way to spice up some leftover chicken wings sitting in the fridge. Naturally, Teressa decided to deep-fry them and toss them in a mixture of cayenne pepper, vinegar, and butter. 

The tasty concoction soon made its way to the menu of the Anchor Bar, where its popularity quickly spread amongst all patrons with functioning tastebuds. And the rest is history.
