Summer bringS us juicy, red watermelon and one of my favorite things to make with it…Watermelon Salad with my Clean Eating Watermelon Vinaigrette. It’s a light salad with a light vinaigrette but has lots of nutrients from the hemp seeds, chia seeds and walnuts. The Clean Eating Watermelon Vinaigrette I used is a super easy dressing that can be made in a matter of minutes and you’ll have plenty left over to use for your summer salads.
