I too have never had buffalo chicken anything until this year and I love it!! My husband is a huge fan of buffalo chicken anything and the hotter the better with him. This looks super yummy and can't wait to try it out!!

I think we had the same first Buffalo Chicken experience. I don't like wings, so I never tried it. But, once turned into a food blogger, I had to try it around Super bowl season. And I died. SO GOOD. Can't wait to try this pasta salad! Pinned!

    YES!!! Wings are too messy. No thank you! :) Thanks for stopping by girl!

Woohoo! My neighbours bought us a big container of Frank's Buffalo Wing Sauce so I know where it is going to use. I bet my non-salad loving husband will even enjoy this meal (once again, I am omitting the word "salad.")

    I literally have like 3 bottles on hand at all times. hahaha!!! It's just so good. Thanks for stopping by! (and I agree. Not a salad!)

That dip is totally addictive, isn't it!? I don't know anybody who doesn't love it. This pasta salad is a brilliant idea, I know it would disappear at any potluck or picnic!

I'm still a buffalo chicken... chicken. Lol. But this is the perfect side dish for a summer barbecue! It might even help me get over my fear of hot sauce :D Pinned!

The first time I had buffalo chicken dip I was hooked! So totally delicious! Love that you took all that flavor and mixed it up with carbs :)
