Recipe: Spicy Buffalo Chickpea Salad

2 Comment(s) | Posted |

I've been a vegetarian for about 3 1/2 years now (well technically a pescetarian), but there are still things I miss from my meat eating days.  One of those things is hot wing sauce.  In no way do I miss the meat it was smothering, but I love the spicy deliciousness of the sauce.  Needless to say, I was really excited when I found this Spicy Buffalo Chickpea Salad recipe over at Perry's Plate.  I cut the recipe in half which was enough for Joel and me.  I followed the recipe pretty closely, however I used Wing Time buffalo wing sauce and added generous amounts of Habanero powder.  I also used goat cheese because we had some in the fridge, but I think blue cheese would have worked much better.  Lastly, there was too much dressing.  Joel was standing behind me encouraging me to add more and I foolishly listened.  On the other hand though, he loved it and added even more to his own salad once I dished it out.  

One of these days I'll get crafty and come up with my own recipes.  I fear you won't see many successes though and I'll have to add a category titled "Katie's Cooking Failures."

    Glad you liked this salad! I think blue cheese would be better, too, because it's usually paired with wing sauce, but it's one of the only types of cheeses that makes the hair on my neck stand up. I just couldn't do it. :) Thanks for linking up! You have a gorgeous blog - best of luck to you!
