Broad Bean Salad

This Broad Bean Salad is a lovely, simple summer salad.Broad Beans start to appear early in the summer from Italy or locally in our summer months. If you sow yours in Autumn as I did (directly outside) you will have them much earlier and deliciously sweet straight form the pod.

I love broad beans just simpleycooked in boiling salted water for literally a few minutes. They are also great in a Summer minestrone soup.
