Fava Bean Salad

1/2 lb fresh fava beans
1/4 lb fresh peas
8 large fresh basil leaves
Parmesan Regiano, shaved
salt & pepper
1/2 cup good quality extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp Balsamic vinegar

Remove fava beans from their pods. Set a pot with lots of water to
boil. Blanch fava beans for 15 seconds in the boiling water and
imurse in cold water to refresh. Drain beans when cool.

Remove the tougher outer shell of the beans and place the soft bean
centres in a bowl.

Shell the peas and add to bowl. Slice basil leaves very finely and
add to bowl. Drizzle olive oil over the beans and peas. Season with
salt and pepper.

Shave parmesan until it is about 1/2 the bean/pea combination.
Add the balsamic vinegar. Toss and chill.

Serve on a bed of mixed lettuces with a loaf of good fresh bread
to dip into the oil.
