Orange and Onion Salad

This salad is best served with a Moroccan tagine or stew, and it also goes well with a roast chicken. The lime juice and the onion neutralize each other’s sharpness, and a sweeter, finer flavor comes through.

Serves: 4


  • 2 medium navel oranges
  • 1 large blood orange
  • 1 small red onion, peeled
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. pine nuts, toasted
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano


  • Cut the top and bottom off the oranges and stand them up on their cut ends. With a small serrated knife, cut away the rind in strips. Remove as much white pith as you can.
  • Turn the oranges on their sides and cut crosswise into the slices. Arrange the orange slices on a plate.
  • Cut slices from the onion crosswise and scatter them across the orange slices.
  • Put the olive oil, lime juice, and salt in a jar with a lid and shake the ingredients to combine.
  • Pour the vinaigrette over the oranges and onions. Top with the pine nuts and oregano and serve at room temperature or chilled.
