Oh Boy!! What a week, I planed to post this recipe 3 days ago. But couldn’t find a minute to sit in front of my computer. It was dead line after dead line. I have this huge project that I’m involved in, that is totally using all my time. Gosh!! I really need a vacation…. I hope you are not bored with all my salads, this site started to look like a salad site. But what can I say… All I can think about right now are salads. And besides they are so fast to put together, it’s a win win. I hope you all have a lovely weekend, with lots of happy cooking.

Herbs Potatoes and Fava Beans  Salad

  • 1 bag of red potatoes
  • 1 small bunch of parsley
  • 1 small bunch of mint
  • 1 small bunch of dill
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme
  • 1 cup of fava beans
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Half lemon
  • 1 garlic minced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

I usually steam cook my potatoes; I don’t really like to cook them in boiling water. Before I start to cook the potatoes I chop up all my herbs and reserve, in a little cup mix together the olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice, garlic and had it all ready. I do that Because the best time to season the potatoes is right when the potatoes are still hot. The preparation of the fava beans is simple and straightforward as you can see here. Mix all well and set aside to cool. They are extremely aromatic and yummy. Enjoy.

It’s the perfect season for salads! Potatoes are so delicious this time of year. The flavors in this salad sound so wonderful!

I love simple and elegant veggie dishes like this. The only thing I don’t like about fava beans is shelling them–but it’s worth it!
