In a microwave glass bowl, mix French beans, juice, vinegar, salt and sugar until blended. Cook on high for 2-3 minutes, stirring a couple of times.
Add French beans and stir to coat. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, or until beans are hot, stirring once.
Spoon beans into a warm serving dish. Garnish with grated orange zest, if using, and serve.
If you don't have canned green beans, use 3 cups frozen beans, thawed in the microwave. Alternatively, cook fresh beans.
