Cucumber fruit roll-ups with vanilla cinnamon dressing

Today’s refreshing recipe comes just in time for the humid first week of summer we’ve had here in Philly. Made with some of my favorite summer foods, these roll-ups are light but filling, sweet but not too sweet, and just plain fun. And for a little extra sweetness, be sure to whip up the vanilla cinnamon dressing made with just five ingredients!

Summer is…finally…here.
