If using fresh green beans, wash and cut into 1 1/2 inch lengths. Steam 5-10 minutes until barely tender. Remove from steamer. If using frozen beans, microwave for about 5 minutes. Place beans and onions in a bowl and mix.
Prepare salad dressing by beating the lemon juice, lime juice, garlic and salt together with a fork or wire whisk until well mixed. Stir in cilantro and parsley. Pour dressing over beans and onions. Cover and marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Mix again and chill for another 30 minutes. Toss again before servings. Garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro sprigs.
