Strawberry and Fava Bean Salad with Pecorino

Strawberry and Fava Bean Salad with Pecorino: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 25 min.
The sharpness of the Pecorina cheese, combined with the peppery arugula, complements the velvety texture of the Fava beans in this delicious salad.

Ingredients

  • kosher or sea salt
  • 2 cups shelled fresh fava beans (about 2 pounds in pods)
  • 2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, stemmed and quartered
  • coarsely ground black pepper
  • 3 cups arugula
  • pecorino cheese

Directions

  • In a large pot over high heat, bring 2 quarts of water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and the fava beans. Boil 1 minute; drain and cool fava beans in ice water. Drain fava beans; pinch one end and slip off tough skins of larger beans (skin on small beans is not usually tough). Discard skins.
  • Whisk together olive oil, vinegar and lemon juice. In a large bowl, season shelled fava beans and strawberries with salt and pepper. Add rucola and enough dressing to coat salad lightly. Mix gently and spoon onto a platter or 6 salad plates. With a vegetable peeler, shave cheese generously over salad. Grind more pepper on top.
