1 . Blanch the green beans: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil (2 Tablespoons salt for 2 quarts of water). Add the green beans to the water and blanch only for about 2 minutes or so, until the beans are just barely cooked through, but still crisp. Fresh young beans should cook quickly. Older, tougher beans may take longer.
2. Shock in ice water: While the beans are cooking, prepare a large bowl of ice water. When the beans are ready, use a slotted spoon to remove them from the boiling water to the ice water to stop the cooking. Drain the green beans and the red onions.
3 Toss with red onion, balsamic, parmesan, bacon: Place the green beans, red onion, chopped basil and bacon in a large bowl. Sprinkle in the olive oil, toss to coat. Sprinkle in the balsamic and parmesan cheese. Toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and ground pepper. Chill until ready to serve.
