Ahhh, spring! It's the time when all my favorite veggies are in season at the local farmer's market. Artichokes, broccoli, green beans, spinach ... raw, steamed or cooked, it's all green and good. If you love your crockpot, spring veggies are perfect in savory dishes to serve for lunch, dinner or even as an appetizer. Here are six slow cooker recipes that I think look particularly delectable.
