Cherry-Arugula Salad with Almonds

(Kirazli Roka Salatasi - Istanbul)

Cherry-Arugula Salad with Almonds
One bunch of Arugula, washed and drained
Handful cherries, pitted, sliced
Few slices of red or white onion
Tulum cheese* or feta cheese or goat or ricotta cheese, crumbled
4-5 almonds, blanched, slivered, lightly toasted

Extra virgin olive oil
Lemon juice

Discard the Arugula stems, break off the leaves into smaller pieces with your hand. Season with salt and lemon juice. Place on a serving dish. Arrange the rest of the ingredients over the top. Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil all over the salad. Serve immediately.

*It is a Turkish cheese made from sheep's or mixed milk, harder and saltier than white cheese.
