Step 1: Make dressing

Whisk all dressing ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate while you prepare remaining recipe.

Step 2: Grill chicken

Preheat a well-oiled grill to medium-high. Rub each chicken breast with 1 tsp. Buffalo Wing Dry Sauce. Grill for 5 to 7 min. per side until chicken reaches internal temperature of 165 degrees. Remove from heat and let rest for 10 min. When cool enough to handle, dice chicken into 1/2-inch pieces.

Step 3: Assemble salad

Place diced chicken in a large bowl with salad ingredients and toss with dressing. Serve immediately, or cover and chill. The flavor gets better the longer you can let it sit before serving.
