Here’s how it works: Wash the beans, trim (ie remove the ends) and cut them into pieces – with fresh green beans, it’s best to cut them into thirds depending on length. Then put in a pot of salted water and add the beans. Add the roughly chopped salad as well. Then cook everything for 10 to 20 minutes – the beans should be soft, but still not falling apart.
Meanwhile, peel the onion and cut it into small cubes. Drain the beans, let them cool slightly and put them in a salad bowl. Add diced onions to the beans. Add two tablespoons of vegetable oil and vinegar to the beans, mix well and season with salt, pepper and a little sugar. Afterwards, the lettuce should be kept cold and slightly soaked.
