Ingredients

  • 500g tomatoes (I used 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 lovage
  • 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

Method

  • 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 a bit fiddly but well worth it – I use my 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.
