Minted Green Beans with Red Onion

    2 pounds green beans, trimmed
    1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
    1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
    1/4 cup olive oil
    3 tablespoons minced fresh mint leaves
    1/2 cup finely chopped red onion

  In a kettle of boiling water cook the beans for 2 to 4 minutes, or
 until they are crisp-tender, transfer them with a slotted spoon to
 a bowl of ice and cold water to stop the cooking, and drain them
 well. Pat the beans dry with paper towels and chill them, covered,
 for at least 3 hours or overnight.

  In a large bowl whisk together the mustard, the vinegar, and salt
 and pepper to taste, add the oil in a stream, whisking, and whisk
 the dressing until it is emulsified. Add the beans, the mint, and
 the onion and toss the mixture until it is combined well.
