Green Bean Salad

1 lb fresh Italian green beans, flat, stringless
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp cider vinegar
1 tomato, diced
1 clove garlic minced
1 small onion or two or three green onions, diced
1/2 cup blanched, peeled, almonds pieces or sticks
fresh ground black pepper
salt to taste
1 tsp garlic salt

Snap ends of beans and cut into 1" pieces. Either steam until just
tender -- about 10 minutes -- or boil in lightly salted water until
al dente. Drain and rinse with cool water but do not let them get
cool. Drain. Add the tomato, oil and vinegar, sugar, salts and
pepper, garlic and onion, and mix well. Adjust the seasonings to
your taste. Mix in 1/2 of the almonds and toss to coat. Place
the salad on a platter or other long dish with a lip and sprinkle
with the remaining almonds. Enjoy.

You can also add avocado and cucumber if you like. This salad is
good served either warm or cold.
