Watermelon Mint Salad

I am on this journey to cleaner eating. You all know I love something sweet! So, my friend Sylvia, who is vegan, gave me this recipe that she got from Trader Joe’s.

I am in love…it is the perfect balance of salty and sweet, cool and refreshing. Who would have known that clean eating would be so much fun! Thank you Sylvia!

If you are vegan, you can substitute the feta cheese with salted cashews ( another tip from Sylvia…LOVE her!)

A big thank you to My Prop Closet for the amazing galvanized cake stand!
