This is such a lovely fresh tasting broad bean salad, ideal for a summer buffet or alfresco meal. For meat eaters, add six rashers of crispy fried, crumbled bacon.

Side dishes


Little Gems have a good shelf-life and can keep for up to seven days in the salad drawer of the refrigerator. Keep them in the original packet, or store them with a damp piece of kitchen towel in a clean plastic bag.


Use the crunchy leaves whole, in salads or as a ‘scoop’ to hold fillings.
