2 cups thinly sliced Vidalia® onions (about 12
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/3 cup raspberry vinegar
3 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 cups Boston lettuce, torn in bite-size pieces
1/2 cup chopped roasted peanuts

Fill a medium saucepan 3/4 full of water; bring to a
boil. Add beans, cook until nearly crisp-tender 2 to 3
minutes. Drain; rinse under cold water until beans are
cool. Cut in half lengthwise, then in 1-inch pieces.
Place in large bowl along with Vidalia¨ onions and
cilantro; set aside. In the same saucepan, combine
vinegar, oil, sugar, salt and black pepper. Cover and
refrigerate until cool, about 1 hour. On 4 serving
plates arrange lettuce. Using a slotted spoon place
onion mixture over lettuce; drizzle slightly with
vinegar mixture. Sprinkle with peanuts. Yields 4
