    This is great, I used fresh broad beans from the garden and also added capsicum and lemon basil as well as Italian parsley and a little crispy bacon. Yum  -  19 Nov 2009


    Sorry, maybe we're just not fans of broad beans. When I opened the can of broad beans, I saw that they had this thick goop all over them. I tried to wash it off but it wouldn't rinse away. So when I put everything together, it was still thick and goopy. Maybe that's just how broad beans are; I don't know. We liked the rest of the stuff.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This quick, easy and healthy salad is packed with fresh flavour. I highly recommend trying this great recipe. I made two minor changes. I reduced the amount of olive oil to one tablespoon and did not add cumin. Wonderful!  -  29 Sep 2008
