Simplicity itself, this recipe takes a favourite vegetable and gives it a touch of Southeast Asian zest. Serve these beans either as a salad or as a side vegetable dish. They may be prepared well ahead of time.
If you are using Chinese long beans or runner beans, cut them into
Heat a wok or frying-pan and add the oil. When moderately hot, add the onion and stir-fry for 2 minutes, then allow to cool. Add to the beans.
Combine all the dressing ingredients and toss with the beans and onion. Serve the salad immediately or chill and serve the next day.
