The warm, sunny days of summer are finally here, and that means it’s time to hit the water. From barbecues to birthdays, June is the month of all things poolside — which also means it’s the month of snack spreads made for easy grazing. Whether you’re attending a pool party potluck or hosting a splash bash of your own, these four delicious dips will keep friends and guests dunking all day long.

From grocery shopping to prep time, everything you see in these photos was completed in less than three hours. So, if on a whim, you decide to throw a last-minute luau or are simply running out of party planning time, these recipes require minimal prep and have short, inexpensive ingredients lists. (Dollar Tree is your party budget’s best friend — all the festive décor and serving-ware pictured here came from the store.)
