Marinated Fava Beans

Fava beans are sweet, tender, and pleasantly starchy. When they're coated with a slick of olive oil, vinegar and garlic bits, the contrast between the sharp dressing and the mild greenness of the beans is really wonderful.

During fava bean season, I try to make it at least once or twice with the fresh beans. The rest of the year, I happily settle for frozen beans. It's good served as part of a spread of pickles and marinated salads, or just on its own.
