the most delicious bite-sized salad
the other week i made this salad using fresh broad beans, feta, mint and olive oil. i usually cook with frozen ones and leave the skins on (which are also very tasty) but i wanted to create a visually stunning salad and i just love the green of the shelled beans.
what i forgot, however, is how many pods you need to use to produce a decent amount of salad. so this many beans, once shelled, produced, quite literally, a bite-sized salad.
it tasted so, so good and was so simple that i made it again for my parents. i used 4 huge bags of fresh beans from the supermarket and was asked at the checkout to confirm i really wanted to buy this many beans.
