1/2 Photos of Fennel, Pea and Broad Bean Salad
We had this salad as an appetizer at a diner party. My friend Samantha told me it was a Gordon Ramsay recipe. I am not a big Ramsay fan but think this salad is fab! So here it is to share...as far as I could tell the only thing Sam did different was giving us one egg each (quatered) Gordon says in his recipe to simmer the eggs for 9 minutes, seems a bit long to me, use your own judgement.

- 2 medium fennel bulbs

- 3Place in a large bowl of iced water and leave to soak for about 10-15 minutes to crisp up.
- 4Boil the eggs, (the yolks should be set but still quite soft) drain, then refresh in a pan of cold water.
- 5Bring another pot of water to the boil, add the broad beans and blanch for 1 minute, then add the peas and return to the boil, blanch for another 3 minutes until the peas and broad beans are tender.

- 7For the dressing, whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
- 8Drain all the vegetables and mix, pour over the dressing and toss well.
- 9Shell the eggs, then cut into quarters lengthways.
- 10When ready to serve, heat a tiny drizzle of olive oil in a non-stick pan and fry the Parma ham slices until golden brown and crisp, turning once. Divide the salad and eggs among serving plates.
- 11Break the crispy Parma ham into smaller pieces and scatter over the salads, sprinkle with pepper and serve.
