  • 2 navel oranges, peeled and divided in half
  • 1/2 small English cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup very thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup torn fresh mint leaves
  • 12 pitted oil-cured black olives, each one quartered



Cut each orange half into thin slices and place them in a bowl, along with the cucumbers. Drizzle with oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Gently toss to mix. Transfer to a decorative serving platter. Scatter onion, mint leaves and olives over top. Flavors will meld best if salad is allowed to sit a few minutes before serving.
