Thai Salad

This is a beautiful salad, so full of flavour and umph! It makes a perfect summer’s evening meal, reminds me of being away on holiday!

The protein element of this dish is the Broad/Fava Beans which as a child I had such a dislike for. It really is to do with how you serve them though. On their own they are so dull and fairly tastless but mixed with these thai flavours, they are fabulous.

Broad/Fava beans are very high in protein, about 15g per serving and they contain plenty of health benefiting antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and plant-sterols. They are also high in dietary fibre, folates and Vitamin B6, so resulting in a very healthy, taste bud tickling meal!
