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.
Serves 6 (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)
1. 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.
