A couple of years ago, while visiting Sicily, I discovered an unusual yet very simple and delicious salad. It was made of oranges, red onion and extra virgin olive oil. It was truly a fabulous combo!
The other day a friend of mine came over for lunch and I thought this salad would work perfectly as a small starter.
What’s nice about this dish is that it’s super refreshing and gives you a great boost of energy. I’m sure I will be making it often this spring and summer ….. it tastes much better when the sun is shining :)
Happy sunny days everyone!
PS: You can substitute red onion with fresh fennel.
Orange & Red Onion Salad
You will need:
1 large orange, skin and white stuff removed
1 small red onion
1 tsp olive oil (or more if you like)
freshly grained pepper
fresh mint to decorate (optional)
Peel the orange skin. Slice the orange into circle shaped slices. Peel the onion, halve it and slice it very thinly.
Arrange the orange slices on a plate, decorate them with the onion slices, pour over a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with freshly grained pepper.
