Ingredients for broad bean salad with blue cheese and walnut:

  • 250g of blue cheese (we used Roquefort but danish blue or even camembert will work)

  • 100g of corn salad (you can use any other type of salad for this recipe it will work great)

Method:

  1. Cook broad bean as per instructions in our post.
  2. Then give it a cold bath (wash it in cold water to cool it down faster or put it in a ball of ice and cold water) so you would be able to peel back the skin.
  3. One by one peel back the skin of each broad bean and set it aside.
  4. Now cut the blue cheese into bite-size cubes and set it aside.
  5. If you are using walnuts or any other nuts that are of a bigger size we recommend to chop it into smaller pieces (that step is optional)
  6. Now all the prep work is done let us start to assemble the salad.
  7. In a bowl or a plate put the salad of your choice.
  8. Then put the cheese, broad bean and nuts on top of the salad.
  9. As the last step sprinkle the salad, with some balsamic vinegar and the salad is ready to be served.
