Insalata Fantasia di Arance

Last night I tried Insalata Fantasia di Arance or Orange Salad.  It is very simple.  The citrus flavour juxtaposed with the olive oil and the sea salt make for a wonderful first dish.




  • 4 large oranges
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/3 red onion
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • Sicilian olives
  • olive oil

I used 4 large navel oranges but you can use any kind of orange.  I think a mixture of blood oranges with navel oranges would be nice.  

  1. Peeled the oranges and 1/2 lemon and cut them into large chunks and placed them in a bowl.  
  2. Dice the onion and olives and add to the bowl. 
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Pour olive oil to taste over the ingredients – at least 3-4 tablespoons.
  5. Let sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes to allow the orange juice and oil to mix.

Per favore! Tell me what you think...
