Preheat oven to 350°F.
Place almonds on a baking sheet; bake 5 minutes. Stir almonds and continue baking until just golden, monitoring oven, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from baking sheet; let cool.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring 1 quart water to a boil over high heat. Add carrots; cook 1 minute (cook an additional minute if you like your carrots tender). Add sugar snaps; cook until just bright green, 2 minutes. Drain vegetables; rinse under cold water to stop cooking and shake out all excess water.
In a medium bowl, combine blanched vegetables, shallots, dill, oil, vinegar, garlic, honey, salt and pepper; toss to combine and then sprinkle with toasted almonds (remove garlic clove, if desired).
