Savour all the flavours of spring in every bite with this elegant, seasonal salad

Serves 6-8 as a starter or side
Prep 40 mins
Cook 10 mins


500g broad beans , frozen or fresh
1 cucumber
3 wholemeal pitta breads
zest and juice 1 lemon
4 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp caster sugar
20g bunch mint , smaller leaves picked, rest very roughly chopped
20g bunch flat-leaf parsley , very roughly chopped
small bunch chives , snipped
170g feta cheese , crumbled


First get all the ingredients ready. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the beans and boil for 2-3 mins until just tender. Drain, rinse with cold water to cool, then drain again. Pod the beans from their skins into a large mixing bowl, discard the skins. Halve cucumber lengthways, scrap out the seeds using a teaspoon, then slice into half-moons and throw in with the beans. Split the pittas so you have 6 thin circles of bread, then toast.

Whisk together lemon zest, juice, olive oil and sugar with plenty of seasoning. Pour over the beans and cucumber, add all the herbs and toss together. Tear the toasted pitta into pieces and add this to the salad with the crumbled feta. Toss together very gently - hands are best - then pile onto a platter to serve.
