- 1Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, prepare an ice water bath by filling a bowl halfway with ice and water.
- 2Place the beans in the boiling water and cook until crisp tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and place in the ice water bath to cool. Drain and set aside.
- 3In a large frying pan set over medium heat, cook the bacon until it starts to brown. Add the onion and cook until it caramelizes and turns golden.
- 4Add the reserved green beans, vinegar, and sugar and cook, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Mix in the parsley and season with salt and pepper.
