This salad of fresh tomatoes, fava beans and smoked gouda is fast, easy and healthy. It tastes good too.
For all my Maltese friends, use FUL, the fresher the better!
For the vinaigrette:
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon sherry wine vinegar
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon whole-grain mustard
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 cups canned black beans, drained well
2 cups fresh fava beans
1 cup fresh snap peas
1/4 cup diced red onion
4 ounces smoked fresh gouda, cubed
12 grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup shredded fresh basil
1. Whisk together all of the vinaigrette ingredients and set aside.
2. Combine the beans, sweet peas, red onion, gouda and tomatoes in a large bowl. Toss the salad with half of the vinaigrette. Garnish with the fresh basil and season to taste with the salt and pepper.
