Fava Bean & 4C Parmesan-Romano Salad

1 pound. (3 & 1/4 cups) frozen fava beans, shelled (or 3 & 1/2 pound fresh)
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 small bunch fresh mint leaves, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (plus some to drizzle)
3 & 1/2 ounces 4C HomeStyle™ Grated Parmesan-Romano Cheese
1/4 pound arugula (about 2 & 1/2 cups) Sea Salt & Pepper, freshly ground (to taste)

Bring a large pan of cold salted water to a boil, add beans, and cook until tender but firm, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain, refresh in ice-cold water, and rub off the skins.

In a medium bowl, gently toss beans with lemon zest and juice, mint, 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil, and 3/4 cup grated 4C HomeStyle™ Parmesan-Romano Cheese. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

Place arugula on a salad bowl and top with dressed beans. Garnish with remaining 4C HomeStyle™ Parmesan-Romano Cheese and drizzle with a little olive oil to serve.
