This salad is from Chris Cosentino’s Beginnings – it’s amazing!! I made one change, I added a drop of vanilla to the dressing because I did not have vanilla salt.
1 c fava beans, shelled
1 c strawberries, quartered
1 bunch of arugula
1 TBSP aged balsamic
1 TBSP olive oil
1 drop vanilla
Salt and pepper
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add Favas and blanch for 2 minutes. Remove and plunge in an ice bath. Remove skin.
Combine balsamic, oil, vanilla and aalt and pepper in a small jar, shake.
Combine berries, arugula and Favas, toss with dressing. Top with shaved pecorino.
