It has been way too long since I participated in a Sunday Supper theme post.  Time is just flying by, and I almost missed this week too, due to a crazy work week.  Missing this week would have made me very sad because it’s Sunday Supper’s birthday!  We are all celebrating by sharing recipes and our favorite Sunday Supper moment.  My recipe for this week is Quinoa and Buffalo Chicken Salad, and I am pretty sure I have more than one favorite Sunday Supper moment.

The first Sunday Supper  event was  founded and hosted by Isabel, from Family Foodie, on January 8, 2012.  My first Sunday Supper contribution was a few months later on May 27th, and I shared a Classic Wedge Salad & Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing.  The Sunday Supper group was warm and welcoming, and it’s one of my favorite regular features here on the blog.  That brings me to one of my top moments from Sunday Supper…attending the inaugural Food and Wine Conference last year in Orlando, FL.  Winning the free conference ticket and hotel accommodations to attend was awesome, but meeting Sunday Supper peeps in person was over the top amazing!

Food and Wine Conference #SundaySupper www.InTheKitchenWithKP The Sunday Supper group challenges me to try new dishes, sometimes cook out of my comfort zone, and always has me wondering how I can improve my food photography.  For this dish I finally tried making quinoa.  I cooked it on the stove using chicken broth instead of water to add another layer of flavor to my salad.  The quinoa came out nice and fluffy, and I new it would be perfect chilled for my salad.

This is a great dish to use up leftover chicken.  I make a simple dressing from my favorite buffalo wing sauce and blue cheese dressing and mix with the chopped chicken.  You can easily adjust the heat level of this dish by adjusting the amount of hot sauce you add.  And of course, if you are not a fan of blue cheese, feel free to substitute ranch dressing.

    Glad to have come across your salad for this #Sundaysupper. We always enjoy salads when it gets too hot outside and yours looks like the kind I can’t stop to eat. =D

    I am so glad you were part of the first Food and Wine Conference. It just wouldn’t have been the same without you! Thank you for all your support and friendship these past two years!

    I’m not a huge quinoa fan, mainly because I don’t think I’ve found a recipe that I really enjoy…However, this might be the quinoa turn-around recipe that I’m looking for since it has so many flavors that I love :) Thanks for sharing it.
