Orange Salad from Mani
I never imagined that i could have orange as a salad but apparently there is a part of Greece where this kind of salad is quite common.
Last summer i went for holidays in one really beautiful part of Greece, in the south east side of Peloponissos in the Sout Greece, called Mani. That area of Greece is most well know for the city of Sparti and history it holds but there are many more beautiful cities next to it.
I did had the opportunity to drive in many cities around the Peninsula during that summer but i think Areopolis was one of the best ones to spend some days and eat in there local taverns
The area is know for producing really high quality olives, and olive oil but also …oranges!
INGREDIENTS FOR ORANGE SALAD
- 2 ORANGES CUT AND SLICED
- 1 ONION SLICED
- COUPLE OF OLIVES
- CAPER LEAVES
Clean carefully the oranges removing there cover and cut them in slices. Place them in nice deep plate and the sliced onion and olives.
Sprinkle with some olives, the caper leaves and add salt to your liking.
This is a new family favourite after holidaying in “deep mani” –
