Recipe: Wilted Lettuces with Fresh Fava Beans

Union Market Recipe - Wilted Lettuces with Fava Beans

Fava beans are one of the great gifts of spring once warm weather arrives. These tender little beans have a nutty, fresh flavor and their lovely bright-green color is the perfect addition to any salad, pasta, or stir-fry.

In this recipe we’ve paired them with a colorful medley of lettuces which we briefly sauté in hot oil before tossing them all in a zesty, herby vinaigrette that makes a great side dish to serve alongside meat or seafood fresh from the grill.
