Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the rotini, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Stir together the mayonnaise, blue cheese dressing, buffalo wing sauce, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the chicken, bell peppers, red onion, and cooked pasta and toss to coat with the dressing. Cover and chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator before serving.

made this for 4th of july and it was a definite success! i did make some changes, including using sauteed chicken breasts seasoned with loads of garlic, adding celery, using ranch instead of blue cheese, adding feta cheese, and increasing the amount of buffalo sauce to kick up the heat. i also used penne pasta because it's what i had. very very good salad that i especially liked because it's different, not the same old thing. thanks!

I made this salad and actually put it on the menu at my restaurant one night. Made the following changes / modifcations: Used Wing Time Parmesan and Garlic wing sauce. Added a significant (1 - 2 ounces?) amount of Orange Krush hot sauce. Added 4 ounces of crumbled blue cheese. Used Marie's Super Blue Cheese dressing. One of the keys to this receipe is to allow it to fully chill after making. It will take you longer than one hour - four is probably a better bet. All in all this is a solid recipe, especially for those who like the "wing" flavor.
