Salads

Countless styles of cooking

One of the reasons why I love cooking is because I enjoy learning about the different cooking methods for a variety of recipes/food.  It’s fascinating! Moreover, I know it’s no longer summer, but I still wanted to try this Chicken Caesar Salad recipe using the crockpot. I was very pleased with how this recipe turned out and tasty it was. I would never have thought of using the crockpot to make Chicken Caesar salad sandwiches. Lol, you know what they always say you learn something new every day, that includes cooking. 😀

This would be excellent for brunch and or a light lunch on a hot summer day with a glass of lemonade and or iced tea. Yum, yum! 😀
