Ready in 45 minutes

Quick and easy to make -- great to have in the fridge for the times you don't feel like cooking.


1/2 cup blue cheese dressing
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/4 teaspoon Paprika
1 1/2 cups cooked chicken breast; diced
1/2 cup Celery; chopped
2 cups cooked elbow macaroni; drained, cold
1 cup fresh tomatoes; diced

Original recipe makes 4



In large bowl, combine dressing, mayonnaise, Tabasco and paprika. Add chicken, celery and macaroni. Mix well to combine. Add tomatoes. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Hint: 1 1/2 c. macaroni cooks up to about 2 cups.

Note: I have made this with full fat, lowfat and fat free ingredients -- all have turned out good. Makes for a great summetime lunch or supper, and packages up well to take to work.

It wasn't bad, but I think I'd prefer the tabasco soaked into the chicken instead of stirred into the dressing.

I made this and it was great! I used wing sauce instead of tabasco and probably close to 1 tablespoon. And I also put wing sauce on the chicken before I added to the salad. Definitely will make this again! YUM!

Made this a few hours ago as a side dish. I left out the chicken and added green onion and a diced red pepper. Also added a lot more hot sauce( used franks wing sauce) My family loves anything with buffalo wing sauce so this was a hit!

I do not like raw celery in a salad so I substituted chopped green pepper. It was great! Nice dressing, especially made with home-made mayonnaise.

Great on a hot summer night. I added broccoli.
