To blanch the runner beans, heat up a pot of water with salt in it. Put in the sliced runner beans and cook for two to three minutes, until they are just barely soft. To stop the cooking, drain the beans and put them right into a bowl of ice water. After the beans have cooled, drain them and set them away.

Get the dressing ready: Whisk the lemon juice, salt, pepper, and olive oil together in a small bowl until everything is well mixed.

Put the salad together by putting the blanched runner beans, cut radishes, and pomegranate arils in a big salad bowl.

Add the dressing and the decoration. Pour the dressing over the salad and gently toss it around to cover everything. Add some chopped parsley on top.

Serve: Put the salad in a serving bowl and serve it right away as a side dish or a light main meal.

FAQs:

1. Can I use frozen runner beans instead of fresh ones?
While fresh runner beans are ideal for this salad, you can certainly use frozen ones if fresh ones are not available. Just make sure to thaw and drain them properly before blanching.

2. Can I prepare this salad in advance for a party?
Yes, you can prepare most of the components of this salad in advance. However, it’s best to dress the salad just before serving to maintain its crispness and freshness. Simply store the blanched runner beans, sliced radishes, and pomegranate arils separately in airtight containers in the refrigerator until you’re ready to assemble and serve.
