Tomato, Avocado, and Arugula Salad with Queso Fresco

This summer, my husband and I are trying to grow as much as we can on our kitchen windowsill and tiny back pouch. The herbs, especially the basil and mint, are thriving. We've managed to grow a few strawberries. Our arugula plant has produced enough leaves for some very small salads. This salad features tomatoes and avocado prominently and uses arugula more as a garnish. Even though there wasn't a lot of leaves, it was a great feeling to eat arugula we'd grown from seed!
