Summer is all about freshness. Farmers Markets. Pick Your Own Farms. Roadside Produce Stands. Backyard Gardens. There is simply nothing better than fresh. What better way to highlight all of your delicious and healthy produce finds than in a salad.
I don’t own many fancy kitchen gadgets or appliances. I love my Vitamix and Kitchenaid Mixer and use one or both daily. But then there’s my slow cooker; it rarely gets any love. I’m not sure why. On occasion I will allow a corned beef brisket the time slowly cook all day or whip up a beef stew for the crock pot. Otherwise, the slow cooker sits in my closet, way back on a shelf, out of sight and out of mind.
This week I dusted off my crock pot lid (literally, there was dust on it) and decided to make a recipe that we all love: lasagna.
