    1       lb           Green beans
    1       sm           Red onion, very
                         Thinly sliced
      1/3   c            Finely minced parsley
    2       tb           Minced fresh mint
      1/3   c            Coarsely shredded Parmesan
    3       tb           Olive oil
      1/4   ts           Salt
      1/4   ts           Freshly ground black
                         Pepper
    1       t            White wine vinegar.
 
   1.  Bring a large pan of water to the boil.  Trim the
   green beans,
     cut in halves or thirds if long.  Put the beans into
   the boiling
     water and time about five minutes, or until tender.
   Drain and rinse
     with cold water until completely chilled.  Pat dry
   with paper
     towels.
   
   2.  Soak the red onion in cold water 5 minutes to
   reduce the acidity.
     Drain and pat dry.  Combine with the green beans,
   the parsley,
     mint, Parmesan, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Mix
   well.  The salad
     can be refrigerated at this point.
   
   3.  Serve the salad at room temperature.  Just before
   serving, stir in
     the vinegar.
