Crunchy Blue Cheese Celery Slaw

Obsessed with buffalo chicken? Yup, me too. I tried out a new recipe from one of my favorite food shows The Chew. Haven't watched it yet? You are missing out! Clinton Kelly one of my favorite TV personalities came up withe the most amazing buffalo chicken dish. Grilled buffalo chicken a blue cheese celery slaw. Get it? It is a play of buffalo wings, but surprisingly healthier. 
In the recipe Clinton used chicken legs and thighs, I tend to lean towards boneless chicken, but didn't want to skimp on flavor so I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs. DELICIOUS. This slaw is the perfect accompaniment to the grilled buffalo chicken. It has the crunchiness you crave in a slaw, but with a added tanginess of blue cheese. Random thought, but this slaw would also be delicious as a potato salad. Add some boiled potatoes and drizzle some buffalo sauce at the end.. done. Buffalo potato salad. See how my mind works? Maybe it is the glass of wine I am drinking right now. Oh well, let's keep with these awesome thoughts.

You should totally mix the dressing a couple of hours before so the flavors have time to meld together. You can use bottled dressing for this. but I assure you it is SO EASY to make your own.You control the ingredients and calories. So try this amazing pair at your next BBQ!
