"Men and Melons are hard to know."
This is a riff on the classic appetizer of melon and prosciutto. I wanted something more substantial to serve as a side dish and the creamy white beans make a great counterpoint to the sweet melon and salty ham. Using the lime and sage bring a tart and a savory note to round out the recipe.
I love to serve this as a side dish with a spicy meal like the Skirt Steak with Pimentos.
