salad nicoise (simple version) & chilled fava bean soup

this is a dinner from about a week ago, following a quite a big brunch during the day with friends. we decided to go healthy for dinner, hence the salad & bean soup.

I always make vinaigrette on my own – this time, i used regular salad oil, red wine vinegar, onion and a hint of balsamico. this time i used a can of tuna instead of fresh tuna (didn’t have time to shop).

the soup is made of fresh fava beans, boiled and then simmered with chopped onion in extra virgin olive oil, mixed with cold milk afterwards, salt & pepper to taste. so simple but quite tasty. i didn’t use bouillon at all, but this way, the taste of fava beans seem to have stood out.
