    IngridH's Note:

    In the Catalonia area of Spain, Fava beans are paired with slivered jamon (cured ham) and fresh mint. According to The New Spanish Table, this salad was invented by Catalan chef Josep Mercader and is now copied all over Catalonia. If fresh fava beans are hard to find, shelled edamame may be substituted. Posted for ZWT 5.

      This side dish has a very unique flavor! The ham and beans are good ole comfort food, but the addition of the mint and escarole add a deeper flavor of something more. This was definitely a more grown up dish, both kiddos didn't care for it but there are a lot of complex flavors going on. Thanks for the great recipe! Made for ZWT5.
