Hi Sophie, thanks for stopping by. Glad you like this recipe, it's scrumptious! Will email you off-blog.

I just found your blog while looking for something else. Here's a great hint for removing favas from their pods: simply place your fingers on either side of a bean, and snap it out of the pod. You don't have to string them, or open the pods. Very fast process if the beans are fresh. Try it this spring!

Hi Terry, yes, that works very well too. I like to open with my nail first so the bean slides right out whole. For the salad, I like the bean to stay whole and intact. Sometimes if you leave the pod closed and snap it out like you describe, one ends up mushing the bean a little.
