Want to serve your Memorial Day BBQ guests a dish that will also contribute to how awesome they look in their bathing suits? Be prepared for the best-host-ever award.

Alexis Wolfer, founder of The Beauty Bean and author of DIY beauty book The Recipe for Radiance, created this party-friendly dip that she says can also prevent ingrown hairs and razor burn by reducing inflammation in the body and keeping bacteria at bay.

The key ingredient? Trendy turmeric, known for its unparalleled inflammation-fighting powers. And it doesn’t stop there.

“Cashews and coconut milk are high in healthy fats, to help keep skin and hair supple for easier hair removal,” Wolfer says. “Cashews are high in protein, which is essential for healthy healing processes. Garlic and ginger are both also anti-inflammatory and help to fight bacteria infections.” (Taking a bite obviously isn’t going to magically banish your red shaving bumps, but think of the big picture.)

Serve it as a healthy replacement to your standard chips and salsa, or, if you haven’t checked your bikini line since before the polar vortex, make a dish for yourself, stat. —Jamie McKillop

The Recipe for Radiance Turmeric Dip

Serves 6–8

1 cup raw cashews, soaked
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp turmeric
1 tsp ginger
1 tbsp agave
Carrot sticks, to serve
Cucumber slices, to serve

Cover the cashews in water and soak for at least three hours. Drain the cashews and transfer to a food processor. Add the olive oil, garlic, coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, and agave and process until smooth. Serve with carrot sticks and cucumber slices.
