Trim the ends of the French beans, pulling off any strings. Wash them and steam for about 15-20 minutes. Cooking time depends on their size. You can add to boiling water some balsamic vinegar. Drain and put them in a large bowl. Let them cool. Dress with all the ingredients and stir gently.


You can add a clove of garlic, if you like.
