Buffalo Chicken Salad with Cashel Blue Dressing

I spent the last week on a mini vacation with my family & it was absolutely wonderful. I drove the short trip down & stayed with my parents in the Tampa area. My cousin Abby flew in from Texas and we spent almost a full week eating, beach walking, dart throwing, shell collecting, mall shopping & eating even more. My swimsuit may have been a little tight, but my heart was full of sunshine & sugar. 😉

While I enjoyed all the beautiful sunshine we had, the bright red burn on my back fat made me realize it was time to get back to salads now that I am back home. I started to make my go to salad on a pita bread “pizza”, but I had a serious hankerin for blue cheese. -yes, I said hankerin. don’t judge.

Luckily I had a giant wedge of Kerrgold Cashel Blue Farmhouse Cheese sitting in my fridge just begging me to figure out someway to eat it…you know, besides on a wheat thin drizzled in honey. The week before vacay, I made my favorite Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas & I wanted that combination again…but this time, in salad form. What can I say? Blue Cheese & Buffalo Chicken just does it for me!

I was really fortunate to get to participate in a Kerrygold virtual dinner party hosted by Paula and Susan. Kerrygold sent a smorgasbord of delicious cheeses and butters for me to try…and try I did! Jorge and I had a dinner centered around cheese for days and days. Jorge may have been over cheese by day 5, but this cheese lovin’ gal could have gone on longer. I always knew their products were top notch, but I really fell in love with their Cashel Blue Farmhouse Cheese. I could seriously eat it every day, all day! …blue cheese is totally a breakfast cheese, right??!
