Mint and green peas are a classic spring combination. If you're a fan of edamame, use it in place of either the green peas or fava beans.
8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)

4 pounds unshelled fava beans (about 2 cups shelled)
2 cups sugar snap peas, trimmed
1 cup shelled green peas (about 1 pound unshelled)
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh mint
2 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Remove beans from pods; discard pods. Cook beans and snap peas in boiling water 1 minute or until snap peas are crisp-tender. Remove beans and snap peas with a slotted spoon. Plunge beans and snap peas into ice water; drain. Remove tough outer skins from beans; discard skins.

Combine beans, snap peas, green peas, mint, and prosciutto in a large bowl. Combine vinegar and remaining ingredients in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Pour over bean mixture, and toss well.
