1) Begin by preparing the spinach in a salad bowl, and then add in the shredded carrots, mix greens and purslane. Mix all of these ingredients well in the salad bowl, and set aside.
2) In a bowl mix the diced tomato, onion, and garlic with a large avocado. With a spoon or a small cup smash the ingredients into a nice purée. Add olive oil and lime juice and mix well with a fork or spoon.
3) Pour the finished purée over the previously prepared green salad, and finally add the crushed almonds. Mix and enjoy with fruit and water.
The Avocado Spring Salad is light, healthy and can be enjoyed for lunch.
