As soon as you see this Broad Bean, Pea & Lemon Salad With Bocconcini you will be instantly reminded of Springtime. The vibrant colors are so inviting – a charming contrast to dull salads that often nobody reaches for. Lemon juice and zest add lively citrus to the herby base, and small clumps of bocconcini (mini mozarella balls) punctuate the greens pleasantly. You really can't fault such a simple, yet impressive salad. Your Themomix enables you to use frozen peas for convenience and still have and infallible result!
