Big Green Lentil Salad

['1 1/2 cups green lentils, rinsed', '3/4 tsp. kosher salt, divided, plus more', '1 1/3 cups plain Greek yogurt', '2 garlic cloves, finely chopped', '1/2 tsp. ground turmeric', 'Freshly ground black pepper', '1 cup unsalted, roasted sunflower seeds', '1 Tbsp. plus 1 1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice', '3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling', '1 ripe avocado, cut into cubes', '1 cup baby arugula', '1 cup basil leaves', 'torn if large']

Cook lentils in a large saucepan of simmering salted water until they are tender but still retain their shape, 20–30 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold running water, and drain well again.
Mix yogurt, garlic, turmeric, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a generous grind of pepper in a small bowl to combine; set aside.
Toss lentils, sunflower seeds, lemon juice, 3 Tbsp. oil, and remaining 1/2 tsp. salt in a large bowl. Gently fold in avocado, arugula, and basil.
Spread reserved yogurt sauce across a platter and spoon lentil mixture on top; drizzle with oil.
