Servings
Serving

Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

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
