      Title: Green beans in garlic-basil dressing
 Categories: Live
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
  1 1/2 lb Fresh green beans* (see
           Note)
      1 tb Sugar
      1 tb And 1 teaspoon salt (4
        ts Total)
      1    Recipe Garlic-Basil Dressing
           (recipe follows)
      5    Firm ripe tomatoes, sliced
      4    Sprigs fresh basil for
           Garnish
 
  Leave the pointed tips on the green beans, but snap off the stem tips.
  Wash. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the sugar and 1
  tablespoon salt. Drop in the green beans and cook until crisp-tender,
  about 6 to 7 minutes. Drain the beans and plunge them into ice water
  to stop cooking. Drain well and refrigerate.
  
  When ready to serve, toss the green beans with 1/3 cup of the
  dressing in a large mixing bowl. Taste and add more dressing or salt
  as needed. Pile the beans high in the center of a large white
  platter. Arrange the tomato slices overlapping around the edge.
  Sprinkle the tomatoes with salt and drizzle 3 tablespoons of the
  dressing on top of them. Garnish with the basil sprigs. Serve
  immediately.
  
  *Note: This is one of the better ways to use canned beans if you
  cannot get fresh. The dressing is flavorful enough to cover any
  canned taste. Buy high-quality canned whole beans and rinse several
  times.
