Ingredients

  • broad beans 300g, (podded weight if fresh, or use frozen)
  • courgette 1, halved lengthways and thinly sliced
  • peach 1, halved and thinly sliced
  • fennel 1 small bulb, very thinly sliced
  • basil a handful of leaves

DRESSING

  • extra-virgin olive oil 3 tbsp
  • lemon 1, juiced
  • Dijon or wholegrain mustard 1 tsp
  • red chilli 1, deseeded and finely chopped

Method

  • Step 1

    Bring a pan of lightly salted water to the boil and blanch the beans for 1 minute, then drain and run under cold water until cold. Carefully pod the beans from their skins, which should have loosened. Tip into a bowl with the courgette, peach and fennel.

  • Step 2

    To make the dressing, whisk all the ingredients together with some seasoning. Pour three-quarters of the dressing into the salad bowl and gently toss. Tip into a serving bowl, drizzle over the remaining dressing and scatter over the basil leaves.
