Bee-utiful Summer Salad

Not all produce needs honeybees for pollination, but their sheer numbers and tenacity make bees powerhouse pollinators. If a plant is not wind-pollinated (like corn), you can probably thank honeybees for the produce. All of the ingredients below (except salt) depend on bees for pollination.


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin avocado oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons wildflower honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon whole-grain mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 ounces cubed watermelon
  • 12 ounces cubed honeydew
  • 1 small English cucumber, cut lengthwise into thin ribbons (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 3 tablespoons torn mint leaves

How to Make It

Place first 7 ingredients in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add melons, cucumber, and onion; toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes. Sprinkle with mint.
