Fava Bean Salad with Feta


Readily available at most supermarkets, canned fava beans are natural partners for the popular Mediterranean feta cheese. Select your favorite creamy salad dressing, and complement this light, easy-to-assemble dish with a quick bread or toasted English muffins. Serve fruit for dessert.

  • ServingServings


  • 2 cups canned fava beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 oz. crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup seasoned croutons
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 4 oz. sliced mushrooms


Combine all ingredients in a large salad bowl. Toss with your favorite dressing, and serve.

Wine Suggestions

The flavors of this salad are accented by the sharp, tangy feta, so try a dry white, perhaps a Sancerre. The Petite Fontaine Sancerre is terrific with plenty of citrus hues
