If this doesn’t scream summer flavors, we don’t know what does. Watermelon is a classic summer fruit that can actually help you stay hydrated. The cucumber in this recipe also contributes to improved hydration levels. When you chop up all the ingredients and let them intensify for about 30 minutes, the first bite is like wow. This dip has the perfect balance of sweet and heat.
