This simple and refreshing citrus salad is a perfect side to any meal - especially meals with cheese. I served this orange salad paired with homemade pepperoni & mozzarella cheese bread on Christmas Eve. It was a hit. I also like to pair it up with cheese raviolis, that's how I remember my Dad serving it. The girls enjoyed helping me make it this year. (I prefer a lot more pepper on the oranges.) It has been a favorite of mine for a long time and yet I have never seen it served elsewhere. Have you?
3-4 Large California Navel Oranges peeled and sliced
1 can/jar of medium black olives
Good quality olive oil
Cracked pepper and Sea salt
~After slicing the oranges arrange them nicely on a large platter.
~Sprinkle fresh cracked black pepper and sea salt. Be generous.
~Drizzle olive oil and let sit for about 30 minutes in room temperature
Oh, and don't forget to top with olives.
Enjoy the goodness.
