  1. Briefly cook the broad beans in simmering water, drain and refresh in cold water. Squeeze them out of their grey outer pods, if you want.

  2. Put the parsley in a bowl, add the shallot and feta. Heat the olive oil in a small frying pan and toast the almonds, add a little salt to the pan, toss, then add the parsley mix along with the beans. Dress with the juice from 2 of the lemon wedges and serve the other 2 on the side.

Made this today with fresh picked broad beans from the garden and substituted chopped chives for the shallot - it was delicious! And so quick and easy.

We had never eaten broad beans before. This recipe brought out the flavour and the almonds just added to it. Will do again.

Brilliant salad using fresh picked home-grown beans and a small red onion as I hadn't any shallots. I also used very tiny cubes of mature cheddar instead of feta and added some fresh mint. Awesome! I'll be making this again!

Loosely followed recipe as computer server went down and couldn't find details again. As result forgot almonds and shallot and used oil. Nevertheless a delicious combination of flavours
