Preparation -- 10 minutes

Fill a small pan with water and bring to a boil. Meanwhile pod the beans, you can easily run your finger on the side on the pod to release the beans.

Cook the beans for about 2 to 3 minutes and immediately transfer them to cold water. You can also double pod the beans, but we choose to pod them once for this easy salad.

Chop the green onion into thin rings and finely chop the parsley.
