Orange Kalamata Olive Salad

This healthy and fruity orange olive salad brings colour and joy to any dinner table. It makes an awesome accompaniment for just about any meat dish.
If blood oranges aren't available, ruby red grapefruit is an excellent substitute. Or just use more naval oranges or a mix of oranges and tangerines. Kalamata olives are harvested when they are fully mature and have a distinctive, rich, fruity taste. Use black olives instead if you wish.

  • 2 Naval oranges, peeled and sliced
  • 5 Blood oranges, peeled and sliced
  • 50 g Blanched almond sticks, dry toasted
  • 80 g Kalamata olives, rinsed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 tbsp Raspberry balsamic glaze
  • 1 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Fresh herbs of your choice (I use spring onions, basil leaves, flat pasley leaves and arugula)
  1. Using a sharp knife, peel naval and blood oranges thickly, removing all the bitter white pith. Thinly slice the peeled oranges crosswise, removing any pits.
  2. Stir blanched almond sticks in a small frying pan over medium heat until toasted lightly.
  3. Arrange orange slices on a large serving platter. Top with toasted nuts, olives and fresh herbs of your choice. Season with salt and pepper. Then drizzle with balsamic glaze and olive oil just before serving.

I make an orange kalamata relish to put on top of asparagus, but never thought of making a salad. What a gorgeous salad and the flavors of those ingredients are so complementary. Love the addition of the raspberry balsamic. Just bought some BTW :)

La ensalada de naranja es una de mis preferidas, aún cuando no la preparo como tú, pero como me gusta mucho también, la prepararé porque sé que me va a gustar mucho.

Orange salad is nice, full of vitamin.

I used the leftover Mandarin oranges once and make salad of it. Simple salad, just oranges, almonds, sesame seeds and dressing. So refreshing and a good way to finish the Chinese New Year fruits and snacks.

I love oranges in salad, and so the idea of a salad made with oranges is really appealing. Happy Thursday!

DEZMOND 9/12/21 13:17

Love the little crystal boat dish! I'm sad that we almost never have blood oranges here, but I do ever so love them.

Such a wonderful salad, Angie! Love all the flavors and textures!

Yvonne @ Fiction Books Reviews 10/12/21 06:13

This just looks so refreshing and great served between courses as a palette cleanser?

Olives and oranges are a new combination of flavours to me, I need to try it!

I would have to swap out the blood oranges though, as I just can't bring myself to eat them, which is silly because it is only the name putting me off I know!

Thanks for sharing and have a lovely weekend :)

babYpose 10/12/21 10:26
