If you are going to eat the salad now, add the vinaigrette and mix gently.

Remarks

If you do not eat the salad right away, don't add the vinaigrette now because the almonds will not stay crunchy. Better in this case to put the salad in the fridge (with a lid of plastic film), and add the vinaigrette (shake it again) just before serving.
