A unique, savory summer salad…

This is a typical dish from the north of Cáceres, in Extremadura, set within the Sierra de Gata, a beautiful land of orange and olive trees.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 peeled oranges (remove all the pith)
  • 1 hard boiled egg and/or flaked cod
  • 6-10 black olives
  • Half of a clove of garlic (be sure to remove the garlic germ !)
  • A tablespoon of finely chopped yellow onion
  • “Pimentón” (Spanish paprika) to sprinkle on top 
  • Drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • A couple pinches of rock salt / sea salt

Instructions:

Finely slice the peeled oranges from top to bottom into wheels to cover the plate. This is your base.  

Place the olives throughout the oranges. Feel free to arrange a few in the centre for presentation or around the edges, however you’d like to present it!

Finely chop the egg (&/or flaked cod) & sprinkle with the chopped onion & garlic over the orange base.

Liberally sprinkle paprika over the top, finish with a good jet of extra virgin olive oil.

Make sure you prepare some nice rustic bread!

Should pair well with acidic or citric wine, like a strong Rosé or Clarete 🙂
