  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grainy Dijon mustard

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

procedure

Stir together onion, vinegar, mustard, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Marinate about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cook beans in a large pot of well-salted boiling water, uncovered, until just tender, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a large ice bath to stop cooking. Drain and pat dry. Whisk oil into onion mixture, then toss with beans.
