chefs demoing how to make fava bean salad
4 lbs fresh fava beans, in their pods (Gales Meadow Farm)
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Kosher Salt, Fleur de Sel & ground pepper, to taste
1-2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 head tender, young chard (Winter Green Farm)
2 soft boiled eggs (Frog Meadow Farm)
3 ounces feta cheese, or to taste (Alsea Acre Alpines)

Shell and peel the favas.  Cook them in a medium sized skillet, over medium heat, in enough olive oil to coat them. tossing or stirring them often, for about 6 minutes, or until they are tender.  Salt to taste.

Bring the eggs to a boil in a pot in enough water to just cover them, and then cover the pot and take it off the heat and time them for 7 minutes.  Remove the eggs from the hot water and putfava bean salad them in cold water to stop them cooking.  Peel the eggs while they are still a little warm, as it is easier.  Mash, roughly, with the back of the fork on a cutting board or in a bowl.

Wash the chard, then cut it into 1 inch square pieces, taking out the center stem, since is it rather chewy.  Toss with the vinegar and leave it, in a bowl, to wilt a little, for about 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, toss the chard, the favas, the soft boiled eggs, and the feta cheese together, adding olive oil to gently coat the ingredients.  Garnish with pickled onion and feta cheese.
Taste, and add fleur de sel and pepper to your liking.
