Tender spring fava beans are prized in southern Italy, where they are often eaten raw with young pecorino cheese. Here, this pleasing pairing is turned into a delicate salad with the addition of leaf lettuce, olive oil and lemon juice.

  • 20


  • 4 lb. fava beans
  • 2 1/2 to 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. minced green onion, including tender
      green portions
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Fresh lemon juice, to taste
  • 8 to 12 soft lettuce leaves, preferably red
  • 2 oz. young pecorino cheese, such as Toscanello
      or Manchego

Wine Pairing

This pairs well with crisp, medium-bodied white wines like the Marani Kondoli Vineyards Mtsvane-Kisi, Georgia from our Wine Club.


Shell the fava beans. Have ready a bowl of ice water. Bring a pot three-fourths full of water to a boil over high heat. Add the fava beans and boil for 2 minutes, then drain. Transfer to the bowl of ice water to stop the cooking, then drain. Peel by pinching one end of each bean; it will slip easily from the skin.

In a bowl, mix together the fava beans, olive oil, to taste, and green onion. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Tear the lettuce into bite-size pieces and add to the bowl. Toss gently.

Using a vegetable peeler, shave the cheese into paper-thin slices directly into the bowl. Toss gently. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Transfer to a serving platter.
