Composed Arugula Salad with Oranges & Avocados & Cheese, Oh My!

1 to 2 heads arugula, or two boxes pre-washed
2 oranges
2 avocados
parmigiano reggiano, shaved

Ingredients for dressing:
1 shallot, finely diced
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (1-2 lemons)
1/4 teaspoon white granulated sugar
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Preparing the dressing:
Juice the lemons and pour into a mixing bowl over the shallots. Macerate for 20 minutes.

Add 1/4 teaspoon of sugar, a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Slowly whisk in the oil; the dressing will thicken slightly. Adjusting seasoning to taste.

Spread washed and dried arugula leaves out onto a large serving bowl or platter. Supreme the oranges and cut the avocados into slices or cubes and place on top of the arugula leaves. Spoon the dressing over top and shave parmigiano reggiano over salad.

Serves 4
