During my pregnancy, I had a love-hate relationship with salads. I knew they were good for me and my baby, but they could be so…boring. That’s when I decided to spice things up with this Buffalo Blast Salad. It was like a party in my mouth – crunchy, tangy, and slightly spicy. It made my meal times exciting and helped me keep my gestational diabetes in check. Now, that’s what I call a win-win!

Buffalo Blast Salad: Crunchy Delight

Difficulty: Beginner Prep Time 15 mins Cook Time 20 mins Total Time 35 mins
Servings: 1


A crunchy, tangy, and slightly spicy dish that's sure to liven up your meal times, while being gestational diabetes-friendly.



  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then brush them with buffalo sauce. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle

  2. While the chicken is cooking, prepare your salad. In a large bowl, combine the chopped lettuce, sliced cucumber, and shredded carrot

  3. Once the chicken is cooked, let it rest for a few minutes. Then, slice it into thin strips

  4. Top your salad with the sliced chicken and drizzle with ranch dressing. Give everything a good toss to combine

  5. Serve your salad with a side of extra buffalo sauce for those who like it spicy. Enjoy!


Salad leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days, but it's best to store the dressing separately to keep the salad from getting soggy
