First time using dried fava beans and had this picture of these wonderful whole beans able to put directly on a salad. They were mushy. I quick soaked them, peeled them and added aromatics and cooked them. Great flavor and not so pretty.
I would stick to fresh Favas for a salad. You might try pulling the beans while they are still a touch al dente or leaving the skins on until they finish cooking.
