Avocado and toasted almonds enrich this leafy salad, which is chock full of crunchy vegetables—cucumber, celery, carrot, and bell pepper. We love the flavour of toasted nuts, and you can find pre-toasted sliced almonds at some grocery stores. Shaving the carrot into ribbons makes for not only a beautiful presentation but easier-to-fork bites.
