Smoked almonds and silky avocados meet in this salad inspired by a recipe in “The Basque Book” by Alex Raij and Eder Montero. The almonds add texture and two varieties of smoked paprika bring woodsy notes and just the right amount of heat. Once assembled, serve the salad right away, as the delicate arugula wilts easily after it is dressed and the avocados will discolor.

Tip

Don't use underripe avocados. The smooth, creamy texture of fully ripe avocados balances the earthiness of the paprika and bitterness of the arugula.

Very nice flavor
Smoked nuts and paprika really work well with the avocado.

Made this tonight and it was a hit. I wasn't sure I would like it but it was delicious. My husband said it was like eating something from a restaurant. I didn't have smoked almonds so I roasted some almonds instead.
