Everyone has an appetizer weakness—mozzarella sticks, loaded nachos, twice-baked-bacon-topped potato wedges, spinach-artichoke dip. For me, a plate of drenched, spicy buffalo chicken could easily stand in for dinner. That’s why I created this salad. With tenders sautéed in olive oil, healthy greens and celery and a spicy dressing made with natural hot wing sauce and Greek yogurt, there’s no need for that calorie-laden, appetite-busting pre-dinner splurge!
