Italian Orange Salad for Christmas Eve and #SundaySupper

Recipe: Italian Orange Salad

Summary: Sweet oranges or tangerines, sharp onions, salty olives and zippy black pepper combine in a traditional Italian Orange Salad for Christmas Eve or any winter dinner.


  • Italian Orange Salad. Recipe here: http://www.shockinglydelicious.com/?p=10975 [1]6 Jeju mandarins (or use any combination of oranges, blood oranges or tangerines)
  • 3 thinly shaved slices of red onion, cut into quarter moons
  • 12 Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
  • Olive oil
  • Grinding of fresh black pepper


  1. Peel and slice tangerines crosswise, and lay the slices overlapping slightly on a plate or platter. You get points for making it pretty! Strew red onion and olives halves over. Drizzle with olive oil and grind some fresh black pepper over all.
  2. Serves 4.
  3. You may prepare the salad several hours ahead of time, cover with Saran wrap and leave on the counter at room temperature until serving time.

Jeju Mandarins

Jeju mandarins are grown only on Jeju Island, south of the South Korea peninsula. They are known for their superb, sweet, juicy, low-acid taste, and they’re seedless and easy to peel. They’re worth seeking out in your produce department, distributed by Melissa’s Produce [2], which sent me samples to taste.
