Here's a simple yet delicious fava bean salad that is rich in nutrients, fiber and protein. The recipe is considered a staple in most middle eastern homes. It's usually had for breakfast on the weekend while all the family members are gathered around.

What makes this recipe so great is that it isn't just healthy and delicious but it's also super easy. You can find Fava beans in most grocery stores. they're sold either canned, frozen or dried. I tried the canned ones and they were so yummy. So all you'll need to do to have this meal is gather all the ingredients, toss them in a salad bowl and enjoy 🥗
