Simple Summer Salad

A really simple, refreshing salad which is perfect as either a side dish or what the recipe intended it to be- a bruschetta or crostini topping. Gorgeous. This recipe serves 4 generously.


What do you need?

  • 1 pack Feta or salad cheese
  • 1 big handful fresh mint leaves
  • 250g frozen peas
  • 350g frozen broad beans
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


How to make?

Cook the Broad beans and drain. Leave the cooked beans to cool, and once cooled, pop out of their skins. Whilst the beans are cooling, cook the peas and then add to the skinned beans. Lightly press on the cooked beans and peas with a potato masher to ‘bash’ them but not completely squish them into oblivion!  Stir and crumble in the feta, torn mint leaves, a good glug of olive oil and season well. Mix all together and serve atop toasted slices of bread or as a side salad. Enjoy!
