Broad Bean, Egg and Radish Salad – a Dish that Brings Memories Back
I remember having broad beans as a snack when I was a child. During the summer, when we visited my paternal grandparents, there would always be a big bowl of broad beans cooked only with salt waiting for us at the table. We would all help ourselves, pop the beans out from their skins, and eat them while we were talking. Such a simple, yet delicious and healthy snack!
A few years ago my mother started making a broad bean salad with dill and thin strips of ham. I loved (and still love) that salad a lot but I have a vegetarian at home, so I had to change it slightly. Instead of ham, I use boiled eggs; and because eggs go well with radishes, I also add them to the salad, and thus I created my Broad Bean, Egg and Radish Salad.
