Green Beans with Toasted Almonds

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at

1-2 pounds young green beans, stemmed but with the tender green tip intact
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
salt and pepper to your taste

Blanch the green beans in a large pot of rapidly boiling water for 3-5 minutes, just until tender. When they are cooked, quickly remove from water and rinse in cold water to stop the cooking.
To toast the almonds, microwave in glass bowl for 1 - 2 minutes, just until they start to turn brown. Stir and set aside. Careful, these will be hot.
Whisk together the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Toss with the green beans and sprinkle the almonds on top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
