Arugula Salad with Avocados (Avokadolu Roka Salatası)

This healthy and nutritious salad has very simple ingredients and does not take much time to make. This salad is our household favorite in Turkey. In addition to being tasty, arugula is rich in calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C.

½ bunch arugula (chopped)
2 large avocados (diced)
4 small firm tomatoes (chopped)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon
1 tsp salt
½ tsp sumac (optional)

After washing the arugula carefully, drain. Place in a large bowl. Add the avocados, the chopped tomatoes and the sumac. When you dice the avocados, make sure to squeeze some lemon juice on them so that they do not get brownish. Just before serving add the dressing so that the salad doesn’t get soggy. When ready for the dressing, sprinkle the salt and drizzle the olive oil. As a last step, squeeze the lemon and toss.
