3. To make the salad; In a large non stick skillet over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Crumble in the buffalo. Season with the chili powder, chipotle seasoning, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 8 minutes, or until browned.

4. Divide the greens onto 4 plates. Spoon the buffalo mixture and cucumber over the greens. Top each serving with 12 tablespoons of salsa.
