Orange Onion Salad

Seems an unlikely combination, but it is delicious.

1 large red onion, sliced

2 large oranges, sliced

1/4 c olive oil

1 Tbsp lemon or lime juice

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp oregano

Lettuce leaves

Ripe black olives, sliced (optional)

Slice onion thick. Soak in cold water 1/2 hour. Drain. Peel oranges. Slice crosswise into thin slices. Try for 8 onion slices and 12 orange slices.

Mix olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and oregano together. Add onions and oranges. Marinate 15 minutes.

On four salad plates put lettuce leaves. Arrange 3 orange and 2 onion slices on top of each plate. Spoon a bit of marinade over top. Scatter olives over all.
