I love Buffalo flavored anything.  For the longest time, I did not like spicy food, and then all of a sudden a few years ago, I couldn't get enough.  Since, we are trying to eat healthier at my house, I was thinking of ways of how I can still get my Buffalo fix.  That's when I came up with this Buffalo Shrimp salad.

One of the best things about writing food posts like this, is that I get to eat as soon as I'm done photographing.  In fact, I'm eating this Buffalo Shrimp Salad right now as I write this post.  It's wonderful by the way.  And it definitely takes care of my Buffalo flavor craving.

Buffalo Shrimp Salad Ingredients

In addition to the Buffalo shrimp, this salad also has crunchy red onion, creamy avocado, cooling cucumber, and zesty blue cheese, all on top of a bed of iceberg lettuce.  I finished my salad off with a store bought blue cheese dressing.  Maybe Buffalo Shrimp Salad this way isn't super healthy, but it's certainly better than chowing down on a whole order of wings.
