Broadbean salad with eggs, bacon and parmesan

I had lived in the UK for two years when I heard about the Two Fat Ladies for the first time, via a Swedish food blog. Oh, the irony… I bought the DVD box straight away and although I love their cooking, the two ladies can be quite annoying to listen to at times.

But all is forgiven when trying their recipes. Like this broadbean salad. The original recipe had anchovies in it, which I substituted for the saltiness of the parmesan. This was a perfect lunch together with a creme fraiche based dressing (creme fraiche + mayo + Italian salad herbs) and a slice of bread.
