                         Dressing:

 Drizzle oil into large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add chopped
 nuts and sunflower seeds.  Stir until lightly toasted; set aside.
 Trim fennel bulb, removing leaves-, with large, sharp knife, cut bulb
 into thin shreds (you should have about 2 cups).  In large bowl,
 combine fennel, carrots, apple and green onions.
 Dressing: Combine vinegar, oil, sugar and salt, whisking until sugar
 is dissolved.  Pour over vegetables and toss. (Salad may be covered
 and refrigerated for up to 8 hours.)
 Just before serving: reserving 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the toasted nuts and
  seeds, stir remainder into salad. Sprinkle reserved nuts and seeds
 on top. Garnish with apple slices, green  onions or fennel leaves.
 * Skinned hazelnuts are available at some bulk food stores.
 Otherwise, to remove skins, place hazelnuts on baking sheet in 35OF
 oven for I0 to 15  minutes or until skin begins to crack; wrap hot
 nuts in kitchen towel, let  cool, then rub off skins with towel.
