Turkish Orange Salad with Mediterranean Dressing Oranges and blood oranges are combined with olives and a simple Mediterranean olive oil and lemon dressing for a perfect appetizer that checks the clean eating box.

prep: 20 mins total: 20 mins Servings: 4 Yield: 4 servings


  • 4 oranges
  • 3 blood oranges
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt
  • 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 10 dried black olives


    Step 1

    Slice a little piece off the top and bottom of each orange so you have a stable cutting surface. Trim away all skin and pith with a small sharp knife without taking too much off the fruit. Slice oranges horizontally and arrange on a serving platter.

    Step 2

    Combine onion, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt in a bowl and pour over the oranges. Grind fresh pepper over the salad and arrange black olives on top.

Cook's Note:

If not using dried olives, make sure you drain off as much brine as possible.
