This is another healthy, low-calorie, and delicious recipe that has been handed down through the generations in my family. I remember this recipe being served as an appetizer or dessert at nearly every family meal. It was also occasionally made as a breakfast main course.
- 2 navel oranges, ripe, it's best to use fresh picked or 2 organic oranges, though regular store-bought ones work as well
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
- Slice orange in half, top to bottom. Then slice each half into 1/4 inch thick slices, leaving rind on. Discard any slices that have more rind than fruit.
- Arrange slices around the perimeter of a serving dish, slightly overlapping. Alternatively, you can arrange slices on individual serving dishes (luncheon sized), using one orange per dish.
- Lightly drizzle orange slices with olive oil, and then lightly sprinkle with the ground black pepper.
- Serve immediately.
- Note: do not allow the olive oil to soak into oranges. The olive oil is meant to be a subtle flavor in the dish, and not the main flavor. Do not put the olive oil on the dish more than one minute before serving. Most of the oil should be left behind on the dish after eating.
