Buffalo sauce is John's favorite flavor. He would seriously try anything if it was coated in wing sauce. When I saw this recipe for pasta salad on Pinterest I knew I had to try it for him. It combined some of his favorite things in life- pasta salad and buffalo sauce, how could it go wrong? Just as I expected, this was a total hit with John. I actually didn't have any. I don't know why, but after I made it I had a total food aversion to it. I'm strange like that, ever since I was a little kid I'd get randomly grossed out by certain things, and sure enough this happened after I made this salad. I'm kind of sad about it because it looked so good and John swore it was amazing, eating it for lunch a couple times after having it for dinner. I'll have to try it again so I can actually taste it!

1/2 pound pasta, cooked, drained and cooled
1 cup chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
1 green bell pepper, diced (or use celery- I strongly dislike celery so I went with bell peppers)
1/2 cup shredded carrots
3 tbsp diced red onion
1/2 cup ranch dressing (blue cheese works too)
1/4-1/2 buffalo sauce (depending on how hot you want it)
1- Combine all ingredients. Toss well. Allow to sit in the fridge all together for at least one hour before serving.
2- If it looks too dry and like too much sauce absorbed in the fridge, add additional ranch/buffalo sauce to taste and stir well before serving.
