These oranges involve no cooking, few ingredients and next to no work. Served by my great-grandmother at every Christmas gathering, these are one of the few traditions I take from my father's family. Using macadamia nut oil in place of the olive oil is also a good flavor combination.

Directions

  1. Trim the stem ends and bottoms off of the oranges, and slice each one into thin rings. Cut a small notch in the peel of each slice so that the slices can be peeled and eaten more easily.
  2. Arrange the orange slices in a single layer on serving platters. Drizzle olive oil over each slice and use your fingers to rub it into the oranges. Garnish with a light dusting of paprika and season each slice with a little salt and pepper.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I was surprised to like this way of eating an oranges as much as I did. The flavors didn't seem like they should work but they do. I think I would slice the orange, peel it and remove any excess pith. It would make eating less mesy.

I liked this recipe, the combination seemed odd to me but I ended up liking it. I didnt measure how much olive oil I used, I just drizzled some onto the oranges. Next time, I'm going to remove the entire peel from the oranges, having them on made them messier to eat.
