  • Summary

    "Skinning broad beans to reveal their bright green inner kernels is time-consuming, but it produces a sweeter, much more visually exciting bean," says Ferrigno. She taught us the great trick of cooking the beans in unsalted water and olive oil to retain that intense color (which looks gorgeous with the red onion). A handful of chopped mint leaves underscores the verdant flavor of this warm salad.

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups peeled shelled fresh fava beans (2 1/2 pounds in pod)
    • 1 teaspoon plus 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 2 medium red onions, chopped
    • Fine sea salt
    • Generous handful of mint, roughly chopped (about 1/2 cup)
