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.
- Remove the beans from their pods. Cook to loosen their exterior coating and then remove the coating skin.
- Cook macaroni.
- Slice onion, chop parsley and cucumber, and then mix with macaroni and ham. Season with salt, pepper; spread olive oil on top.
- Top with broad bean.
By the way, do you like broad beans?
