Super simple summer salad

Standard

Hi,

The title says “summer” salad. You may ask… where is the summer? Well, definitely not in the Netherlands:) Surprisingly for about 4 hours, we had yesterday around 17 degrees and the sun. What a special day!

One of the organic vegetables from the Odin package, were broad beans. These are very popular in Poland. In the Netherlands it is very difficult to find a place where you can buy them. The peak season starts in the end of June and lasts until mid-September. I decided to give to my dish a bit of seasonal tint.

This recipe could not be easier. Moreover, it is healthy.

Yesterday with a little bit of sun, I felt really special. If it is cold outside, eat it as a side dish with a fried/boiled piece of meat. It will make your dish complete and summery.

Ingredients (for 2 people):

– 250g macaroni

– 1 red onion

– ½ salads bowl broad bean

– 200g sliced ham

– Fresh parsley

– 2 sour cucumbers

– Salt and pepper for seasoning

– 1tbsp. olive oil

*I forgot to add olives but they are on the picture:) With or without, the salad is absolutely great. If you decide to add olives, use about ½ of the package.

 

Know-how:

  1. Remove the beans from their pods. Cook to loosen their exterior coating and then remove the coating skin.
  2. Cook macaroni.
  3. Slice onion, chop parsley and cucumber, and then mix with macaroni and ham. Season with salt, pepper; spread olive oil on top.
  4. Top with broad bean.

  

By the way, do you like broad beans?
