Freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon minced flat-leaf parsley


  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Set up a large bowl of ice water. Add the fresh beans to the boiling water and cook for 5 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge the beans into the ice water to stop the cooking and set their color. Drain.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the beans and the onion. In a small saucepan, bring the sugar, vinegars, and salt to a simmer. Pour the liquid over the beans. Marinate the beans at room temperature for one hour, tossing several times. Just before serving, season with salt and pepper to taste, add the parsley. Serve.
