Fava Bean Salad with Fresh Sage and Lemon
3 Cups dried fava beans (or four 12-14 oz. cans, drained and rinsed)
Juice of 2 large lemons.
1/2 Cup olive oil.
2 Cloves garlic, minced.
3 Generous tablespoons fresh, chopped sage.
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.

If using dried fava beans, rinse and put in a large soup pot. Cover the beans with a few inches of water. Let them stand overnight (or use the quick soak method: bring to a rapid boil for 2 minutes, turn off heat, and let soak at least an hour, preferably three or four). When you're ready to cook the beans, drain the soaking water, cover with a few inches of fresh water, and cook until firm yet tender. It should take about two hours. Try not to overcook, or they'll break easily when you mix them with the dressing. If you use canned beans, it's much quicker. Simply drain and rinse the beans.

Put the cooked fava beans in a large bowl. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic and fresh sage. Stir gently but thoroughly. Add salt and pepper to taste. For the best flavor, let them stand about an hour so the flavors combine.
