Orange, olive, and green onion salad.

This is a Sicilian specialty, at its best when prepared with blood oranges. I got the recipe from Monica, a born and bred Sicilian.

Ingredients

4 oranges 700 g
2 green onions/scallions
20 black olives 8 tbsp
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 30 mL
1/2 dried chili peppers, minced 0.4 g
1 tbsp Italian parsley, fresh, chopped 5 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Peel the oranges with a sharp knife, removing all the white pith from the flesh and saving the juice, if any. Cut the oranges into 7-8 mm rounds. Thinly slice the green onions. Arrange the orange rounds with the onions and olives on a platter.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the extra virgin olive oil, reserved orange juice, minced chili pepper, salt, and pepper to taste. Pour over the salad.
  3. Allow to stand for at least 30 min before sprinkling with the chopped parsley, then serve.
