It’s full of vitamins and minerals, so you’ll feel satisfied after eating it.

If you want to make a salad that complements the spicy flavor of buffalo chicken wings, try this recipe for pineapple and pepper salad.

Cole slaw

Cole slaw is a great side dish to serve with buffalo chicken wings.

It’s crunchy, and it adds a contrast of texture to the meaty wings that you’ve just devoured.

You can make it with any kind of vegetable you’d like: shredded cabbage, carrots and even cauliflower are all delicious choices.

Cole slaw is also easy to dress up in different ways—just add your favorite dressing!

Honey mustard is delicious but tangy ranch works just as well if that’s what you’re into.

If you’re looking for something more substantial than just veggies and dressing on your plate, cole slaw pairs really well with buffalo wing meatballs!

Just make sure not to smother them too much (or else it’ll be hard for people to taste those tasty wings).

Grilled-veggie kabobs

Grilled-veggie kabobs are a great side dish to serve with Buffalo chicken wings.

The natural sweetness of grilled vegetables brings out the flavor of the wings, and grilling is easy, healthy, and a great way to use up leftover veggies in your fridge.

It’s also an excellent way to add more vegetables into your diet!

If you want to try putting grilled veggies on your plate, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Cut the vegetables into similar-size pieces.
  • This will ensure that they cook at the same rate and avoid overcooking any one type of food.
  • Try different types of vegetables.
  • Corn and bell peppers are great additions to kabobs!
  • You can also use eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms or cherry tomatoes (halved).

Green beans, broccoli, or asparagus

If you’re looking for a unique way to serve your buffalo chicken wings, try wrapping them in bacon!

It’s an easy way to add some crunchy goodness and make sure that every bite is flavorful.

You can also use this method when preparing vegetables like mushrooms or asparagus.

These vegetables make a lovely accompaniment to buffalo chicken wings.

The key is to make sure you cook them in a manner that retains their texture and flavor, while also maintaining their bright green color.

Salmon or chicken sandwiches

If you’re making a sandwich, here are some ideas for what to put in it:

  • Salmon or chicken breast, sliced thin and seasoned with salt and pepper.
  • This can be served as is or stuffed into a whole wheat pita with lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers.
  • Boneless skinless chicken thighs cooked in the oven until tender; combine with homemade or store-bought buffalo sauce (I recommend Frank’s RedHot) plus 1/4 cup butter.
  • Serve on a wheat roll topped with lettuce, tomato slices and blue cheese dressing if desired!

To serve these sandwiches as appetizers at your next party or tailgate party add some sliced celery sticks, carrots sticks (cut into small rounds), cherry tomatoes for color & crunchiness…and of course some blue cheese dressing!!

These buffalo chicken sandwiches are so easy to make and they’re great for a quick lunch or dinner.

The recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if you want to serve the sandwiches at a party or potluck.

I like to serve them on wheat rolls with lettuce, tomato slices and blue cheese dressing if desired!

Blue cheese dressing

Kraft Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing (16 fl oz Bottle)

Blue cheese dressing is a good complement to buffalo chicken wings.

It’s creamy, but has a sharp tang from the blue cheese and mayonnaise.

You can make it yourself, or buy a bottle from the store.

If you want to make your own, start with 1/2 cup mayonnaise and 1/2 cup sour cream, then add 2 tablespoons of crumbled blue cheese and season with celery salt and black pepper.

Blue cheese dressing is made with blue cheese!

The cheeses used in this recipe include Roquefort, gorgonzola, and/or Maytag blue cheeses (you can use any kind of mild-flavored blue cheese you like).

Buttermilk adds some richness to this dressing; if you don’t have any on hand or don’t want to buy it just for this recipe then substitute milk instead.

Mix the ingredients together in a bowl until they’re well combined.

If you like, you can add some chopped celery or scallion to the dressing for extra flavor and crunch.

Serve this dressing on your favorite salads or as a dip for warm veggies like carrots.


So, what should you serve with buffalo chicken wings?

If it’s a big crowd, go with the classic: a side of fries.

But if you have only a few people over, try one of these alternative options instead.
