Fill a large bowl with ice and water. Place the green beans in a steamer or a pot fitted with a steaming basket over boiling water. Season with salt, cover the steamer, and steam until just tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer the beans to the ice water bath for 5 minutes to cool. Remove the green beans from the water using a slotted spoon and spread them on a plate covered with paper towels to absorb any extra water. Let air dry for 5 minutes, then place them in a serving bowl.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the lime juice, soy sauce, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. While whisking, slowly add the olive oil until well blended.
Pour enough dressing over to coat lightly (reserve the rest for another use). Add the cheese and red onion and grate the Brazil nuts over the green beans with a Microplane grater. Taste, adjust the seasonings, and serve.
