Procedure: 
Shell the beans and blanch in water for about 2 minutes. Drain and cool. 
Take the skins off the beans and place the beans in a bowl. Toss with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, diced ( green) tomatoes, and diced provolone cheese. Place the bean salad in a deep dish to mold them. Cook the quail eggs in water for 5 minutes after the water has begun to boil.
