Blue cheese, celery and a dash of hot sauce—it's a tried-and-true combo as an adornment for Buffalo wings. So it's no surprise that it also works to make a killer salad! Serve with turkey burgers or roast chicken.

This is a great new salad! Quick and easy, much less celery is cheap! I didn't have buttermilk so I did a Google search for subsitutes (vinegar and greek yogart). I also used sliced red onions (vs. green) which gave it some color. I was so impressed with this salad that I immediately passed it on to my daughters. I would highly recommend it!
