Crunchy “Hot Wing” Salad


Thank-You to Pepperidge Farm for sponsoring today’s post.

One fun thing about being a food blogger is trying new food products. When Pepperidge Farm asked if I would do a post on their new gluten-free Goldfish Puffs ®, I ran out to the store and bought all the flavors for my family to try. We all sat around the table during snack time and compared all the flavors, including two new ones. Twisted Grilled Cheese and Sizzlin Hot Wings.

It is no nice that food companies, like Pepperidge Farm are coming out with gluten- free options. I have a whole bunch of people in my extended family who live a gluten-free lifestyle, and I am sure they would love these.


My two toddler boys really loved the Twisted Grilled Cheese</em>, while my husband and I thought that the Sizzlin Hot Wings flavor had a nice little kick to it.

I decided it would be fun to make a ” Hot Wing” flavored salad with the Sizzling Hot Wing Goldfish Puffs . Who doesn’t love a little added CRUNCH to their salad?


Crunchy “Hot Wing” Salad ( serves 1-2)


2 cups of spinach chopped

1/2 cup of chopped cucumber

1 tablespoon of blue cheese

1 tablespoon of blue cheese salad dressing

1/2 cup of Sizzlin Hot Wing Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Puffs

Optional: Grilled Chicken pieces or any other vegetable you like on salads

Method Assemble your salad. Chop spinach and cucumbers, sprinkle on blue cheese and Goldfish Puffs and drizzle on salad dressing. Add chicken or more vegetables if you like.

these Goldfish Puffsadded a nice crunch to my salad, and were fun to snack on! My kids loved them. This is a nice snacking option for gluten-free folks.




  1. I never thought about putting Goldfish Puffs in a salad before. But I love crackers with salad and I bet it gives it a nice crunch!

    OMG I love this so much! I l.ove salads with a kick like this – it’s perfect for a summer lunch!

  3. I would never have thought to put these on a salad for a bit of crunch. I love goldfish crackers too!

  4. My family loves goldfish but I don’t think they’ve tried the puffs yet. I’m sure they’ll love hearing about these.

  5. I love spicy hot wings. I’ve never had it on a salad in this capacity though. Sounds like an interesting combination.

  6. Yum! That looks so good and I am beyond thrilled that Goldfish has come out with Gluten Free items! I can’t wait to find them and try them 🙂

  7. Now this is my food! I love vegetable salads because I love vegetarian dishes. I’m trying this later.

  8. That’s cute. What a fun way to top a salad. My kids are salad lovers. They’d really be into them with goldfish sprinkled in.
