Mango Cucumber Salad {with Fresh Mint, Coriander Seed, and Cumin}

by Lauren


This has been such a complicated week of emotions. As of Sunday, I have officially moved out of the original LYK (forever in my heart though!) and shared home with my best friend. Chris and I are weeks away from marriage, so we figured it was probably time for Chrissy and I to part ways.
