Instead of beans, green asparagus is also a great accompaniment to this delicious spring salad. Wash the vegetables, cut off the woody ends and peel the lower third of the stalks if necessary. Then cook them in boiling salted water for about 5 minutes, drain them just like the beans and rinse with cold water.

Rinse and trim the beans, then blanch in boiling salted water for 8 minutes until al dente. Remove from the water, shock in an ice water bath, and drain thoroughly.
