Fresh Fennel, Pea and Broad Bean

Kathy Tsaples

Ingredients:

  • 500g fresh broad beans, in their pods
  • 3–4 small fennel bulbs
  • 250g frozen peas, thawed and rinsed
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced 1 cup dill, finely chopped
  • 1⁄2 bunch mint, finely chopped, plus extra whole leaves to garnish
  • 1⁄2 bunch flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped, plus extra whole leaves to garnish

Dressing:

  • 4 tbsp Greek extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar 1⁄2 tsp salt
  • 1⁄4 tsp pepper

Method:

  1. Double-pod the broad beans so you are left with the tender, bright green beans.
  2. Remove the stalks and trim the bases of the fennel bulbs, reserving some of the small, bright green inner fronds for the garnish. Using a mandolin or food processor, finely shave the fennel and red onion.
  3. Place the broad beans, fennel, peas, onion and herbs in a large bowl.
  4. Whisk the dressing ingredients together, pour over the salad and toss well. Taste and adjust the seasoning and lemon juice as required. Finish with the fennel fronds, mint and parsley leaves.
  • Tip: Use 300 g frozen broad beans if fresh are not available, or to save time. Simply thaw, rinse and peel off the outer skin.
