Small treasures : orange salad, Sicily

I love it when foreign cooking shows you a totally different take on an ingredient you’ve known forever.
This Sicilian orange salad is an excellent example of that. I had it with a plate of local cheese and have been recreating twice since we came back. Oranges are seasoned with seal salt, oregano, dried peppers, red onions and excellent olive oil. It’s so simple yet so good, and I would never have dared to mix oranges and olive oil.
I guess traveling do indeed broaden your horizons!

      @Agness great! I hope you’ll like it 🙂 Don’t be shy with the seasoning, like all things Italian it requires a generous amount of everything!
