Description

Fava beans are a hearty and bold bean that acts as a great base for this salad. Bacon, scallions, and sun-dried tomatoes accent the beans perfectly for a savory salad that is perfect for enjoying in the summer. A simple balsamic vinaigrette brings all of these ingredients together and adds a bit of tartness. You can serve this as is, over a bed of grains, or with a piece of grilled meat for a filling dinner.
