Shucked Favas       Your favorite Salad Dressing
Avocado       Lemon Zest
Salt and freshly ground Pepper
Big pot of well Salted Water, boiling
Finely chopped Basil
You might consider adding any of the following: Marinated Artichokes, Roasted Red Peppers, Feta Cheese

Boil the fava beans until tender.  I do not remove the outer skin like most people do. I find that our favas have been quite tender and don’t need to add this extra step.  Drain then put the favas into a bowl and immediately pour on the salad dressing.  Start out with a 1/4 cup, mix well, add another 1/4 cup if you think you need it.  Cover so the flavors from the dressing steam right into the beans, letting it rest about 10 minutes.  Uncover, grate on lemon zest, season with salt and pepper to taste, add the chopped avocado and any of the optional ingredients, toss well.  Top with a sprinkling of finely chopped basil and enjoy!
