Hellmann's isn't just for sandwiches. The mayonnaise maker teamed up with Food Network host and chef Lynn Crawford of Toronto's Ruby Watchco for some fall recipes that will make you see this condiment in a whole different light.
Chef Lynn Crawford’s Buffalo Chicken Salad with Ranch Dressing
Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat.
Combine lettuce, carrots, celery, radishes and tomatoes in a salad bowl.
Add oil and butter (or Becel) to hot pan with the chicken.
Season with salt and pepper and sear for 2 or 3 more minutes, then add Buffalo Sauce. Reduce heat a little and cook for 5 more minutes. Toss salad with dressing and season with salt and pepper. Top salad with white cheddar and Buffalo chicken and serve.
Buffalo Chicken Sauce
In a sauce pot over medium heat, add the olive oil, garlic and shallots and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook together for 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.
Store in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Mince the garlic with a knife and then sprinkle on the salt and mash it in to a paste with a fork.
In a bowl, combine the garlic paste, mayonnaise, sour cream, parsley, dill, chives, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, vinegar, paprika, cayenne and hot sauce. Add the buttermilk, quarter cup at a a time, to desired consistency and mix to combine, tasting frequently and adjusting seasonings as needed. Chill for a couple of hours before serving, thinning with more buttermilk if needed.
