Serves four as a light lunch

For the dressing:

1 tbsp sherry vinegar

¼ tsp honey

3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 tbsp lemon juice, to taste

For the salad:

550g (1lb 3oz) broad beans (podded weight)

1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

juice of ½ lemon

2 tbsp olive oil

2 shallots, sliced

2 cloves garlic, finely sliced

125g (4½oz) French beans, topped but not tailed

40g (1½oz) Serrano ham, torn into bits

leaves from 4 sprigs mint, torn

Put the vinegar and honey into a cup, season, then whisk in the olive oil using a fork. Add lemon juice to taste and set aside.

Cook the broad beans in boiling water until tender – about three minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Slip the beans out of their skins into a bowl containing the extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice. Season.

Heat the olive oil in a small frying-pan and gently sauté the shallots until they are just tender but still pale. Add the garlic and cook for a further two minutes. Gently fork this into the broad beans.

Steam or boil the French beans until al dente, drain and rinse in cold water. Blot dry with a clean tea towel. Add to the broad beans, along with the ham, dressing and mint. Toss together gently and serve.
