Recipe: Angela Occhipinti's Orange Salad

I enjoyed this salad during my stay at Locanda COS in Sicily. It is perfect for a light lunch or afternoon snack.

    • 5 oranges
    • flat leaf parsley
    • 2 spring onions
    • 10 anchovy filets (Angela uses salted anchovies and filets them herself)
    • sea salt, black pepper
    • 3 - 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Peel the oranges using a very sharp knife, keeping them whole, removing all white pith. Divide the orange in half and then quarters. Trim the white core and remove seeds. Cut into bite-sized pieces and place in a serving bowl.

Chop the parsley and the spring onions and add to the bowl. Coarsely chop the anchovies and add to the bowl.

Dress with salt, pepper and extra virgin olive oil and serve.
