  2. In a clean, dry cast iron skillet, lightly toast the almond slices and allow to cool.
  3. Cut the tips off both ends of the string beans; cook beans uncovered in boiling lightly salted water until crisp-tender.
  4. Once the beans are cooked, drain and immerse immediately in cold water to halt the cooking process. Drain again. Set aside.
  5. Peel the apples; seed, core and cut into strips.
  6. Combine the vinaigrette, beans, apples, (onions if using) and almonds in a non-reactive salad bowl. Chill until ready to serve.
