Method

  • In this recipe we use black olives that we harvested and cured last year. Okay, we are showing off a bit, but any decent oil cured olives will work.
  • It’s a beautiful zesty, fresh and healthy salad to start 2014 in style.
  • Cut the peel and pith from the oranges, then separate the segments. Toss the orange segments, fennel, onion (seriously finely sliced), mint, and olive oil and olives in a large bowl and mix well. Season generously with salt and pepper, and serve.
