After that, chop the lettuce into bite-sized pieces, cut the cherry tomatoes in half, slice the scallions into rings and slice the avocado as well.

Now in a serving salad dish, first add the lettuce. Next, roll the sliced carrots and cucumber and then add them to one side of the dish. Then add the prepared cherry tomatoes, avocado, scallions, spears of white asparagus, and sunflower seeds to the salad.
