How to make it

  • Wash and trim the beans; destring.
  • steam the beans until barely tender.
  • plunge in ice cold water to stop the cooking, drain well.
  • Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
  • Add the dried off green beans to the dressing, add swiss cheese.
  • Toss well.
  • Chill for two or three hours.
  • Add the olives, onions, and peppers and cover and chill overnight, best case scenario, a minimum of four hours chill time if you are in a hurry. I don't add the onions and olives earlier because I want the beans to absorb the dressing flavor foremost and the onion, olive flavor secondarily.
  • Just before serving, sprinkle with the toasted almonds.
