- 500g tomatoes (If you can, use a mix of sizes and colours)
- 1⁄2 tsp caster sugar
- 150g broad beans , podded
- handful basil
- handful chives
- handful flat leaf parsley
- 1 tbsp tarragon
- 1 tbsp mint leaves
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- pinch of fennel seeds
- 1 lemon , zested
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 2 x 100g burrata or 2 x 125g balls mozzarella
- 50g hazelnuts , toasted and roughly chopped
- STEP 1 Chop the tomatoes into a mixture of slices and wedges, then put them in a bowl. Toss with 1/2 tsp salt and the sugar, then leave to marinate for 30 mins. Meanwhile, bring a pan of water to the boil and add the broad beans. Boil for 2 mins, then drain and allow to cool for a couple of mins. Peel them out of their shells. This is fiddly but well worth it – use your thumbnail to pierce the skin, then gently squeeze out the shiny green beans.
- STEP 2 Finely chop the herbs, then tip into a bowl and whisk in the olive oil, mustard, fennel seeds, most of the lemon zest, and red wine vinegar. Season, then stir in the broad beans.
- STEP 3 Tip the tomatoes onto a serving platter. Top with the burrata, then spoon over the broad bean salsa. Scatter over the hazelnuts and remaining lemon zest to serve.
