Citrus Salad Recipe with Avocado and Vinaigrette

With citrus season in full bloom, I’m incorporating the tart fruit into my meals as much as possible.

Recently, I’m adding a few slivers of citrus into my salad for extra brightness and flavor. This citrus salad with avocado and vinaigrette is one of my favorite lunch meals.

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

It’s Superbowl weekend! I’m not usually a football fan, but the Atlanta Falcons made it to the event, so I became a super fan. During the semifinal game, I made this Buffalo Chicken dip and posted some images on Instagram Stories. I had some recipe requests, so I thought I would quickly share before the game. The funny thing is, I looked up buffalo chicken dip on Pinterest and pretty much combined my favorite parts of all the recipes.

As I was making the dip, I was concerned that it would be overpowering, but buffalo chicken is supposed to be a strongly flavored dish. All in all, I was very pleased with the final product. We ate it with pita chips, but it can be eaten with tortilla chips, toast, veggies and more. I actually saw an awesome recipe that filled zucchini with the buffalo chicken dip! Might have to try that next time.
