Remove the ends and string the green beans.
Bring 2 1/2 quarts of water to a rolling boil.
Add the green beans and salt.
Reduce the heat a little, cover, and cook until the green beans are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
Drain and set aside.
Place the butter, bacon, and green onions in a large skillet over medium heat and saute for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy.
Add the green beans to the skillet and toss to heat them through.
Adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
