Ingredients

  • 300g podded fresh or frozen broad beans
  • 100g young salad leaves (we used wild garlic leaves, pea shoots and cress) or rocket
  • 500g buffalo mozzarella or feta, broken into rough, bite-size pieces

For the dressing

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 5 tbsp cold-pressed rapeseed oil (from health food shops) or olive oil
  • A little chopped fresh mint

Method

  1. Blanch the beans in plenty of salted, rapidly boiling water for no more than a couple of minutes. Plunge straight into cold water and drain. Squeeze the beans gently with your thumb and forefinger to remove the tough skins (you don’t have to but they will look spectacular and be easier to digest). Set aside.
  2. Make the dressing. Mix together the garlic, lemon juice, rapeseed oil, mint and some salt. Set aside.
  3. Arrange the salad leaves, beans and cheese on plates, and serve with the dressing.
