Orange Salad with Olives

I originally saw a similar recipe on a website for an Italian dish usually eaten for good luck on New Year's eve. I came up with this version based on what ingredients I had on hand and this is how I make it every time.  I crave this in the winter and I am sure your body will love it with all the vitamin C it will get from the oranges. 

Orange Salad with Olives

Serves 4-6 as a side dish


  • 2 blood oranges sliced and seeds removed 
  • 2 navel orange sliced
  • 2 cara cara oranges sliced
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
  • 1/2 red onion quartered and sliced thin (into tiny moons)
  • 1 T Exgtra Virgin Olive oil for drizzling
  • Flaked Sea Salt and pepper to taste (just a pinch)

Simple Steps

  • 1
    Arrange sliced oranges on a platter. 
  • 2
    Spread sliced olives over oranges.
  • 3
    Spread red onions over oranges and olives
  • 4
    Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil
  • 5
    Add a pinch of salt and pepper

You can make this salad ahead of time and thow it into the refrigerator to chill it down a bit or you can serve at room temperature.  Either way it is delicous.  It will also keep over night if you want to bring leftovers for lunch.
