Ingredients 

French beans
Shredded Coconut
Bean sprouts
Mint
Ginger
Limes
Your favourite chili pepper
Place some beans in boiling water for 4 minutes until they are soft but definately still crunchy. Cool them under running, cold water until they are cold.
While they are boiling, slice upyour favourite chilli pepper into very small chunks and add it to a bowl with a hand-full of shredded coconut. Peel half a thumb worth of fresh ginger and cut into very small chunks, then take a around 10 leaves of fresh mint and rip these with your hands and add these and the ginger to the coconut as well. Now take a handfull of bean sprouts and add them to the mix together with the squeezed juice of a lime. If the limes do not have a lot of juice, use two! Finally, add the cold, boiled beans to this mix, add a pinch of salt and stir. This dish should be served cold. Before serving taste that it is to your liking by adding more of any of the ingrediants you choose, e.g. I love a lot of lime and chili while my grandma wants a lot of ginger.
