When broad beans appear at the market, I buy them almost every time I shop. Since I discovered this recipe for a delicious salad with new potatoes, I make it continuously. It's the taste of summer in one bowl of deliciousness.

Broad beans are most commonly served boiled with butter and dill. Some peel them, others eat them with the skin on. However, I am in a completely different camp—I make a delicious summer salad with broad beans, new potatoes, cucumber, and tofu. It's a tasty alternative to meat dishes and a delicious addition to a barbecue. It’s also perfect for a light lunch on a hot day.

Summer salad with broad beans

This salad is the essence of summer meals. Nothing evokes warm months more than boiled broad beans and new potatoes. The green cucumber adds freshness, and the tofu makes the salad more filling.

When it appears on the table, everyone immediately reaches for plates. Broad bean fans will be delighted, even if they prefer the traditional version with butter and dill. A lot is going on, and it all comes together with the addition of mayonnaise.
