Here’s how it works: Wash, trim (i.e. remove the ends) and split the beans – with fresh green beans, it’s best to cut into thirds lengthwise. Then put it in a pot with salted water and add beans. Also add roughly chopped sweet. Then cook everything for 10-20 minutes – the beans should be soft, but not yet falling apart.
Meanwhile, peel the onion and cut it into small cubes. Drain the beans, cool slightly, and place in a salad bowl. Add finely chopped onions to the beans. Pour two tablespoons of vegetable oil and vinegar over the beans, mix well, add salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar. The salad should then be cooled and slightly soaked.
