This is a lot more delicious than I imagined it would be. I used clementine sections instead of orange, unrefined extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, a good pimento stuffed green olive but would recommend to try with black, no sunflower seeds but for a little of the flavour I added a drizzle of unrefined sunflower oil, plus the rest of the ingredients. I would like to make this again with black olives. Made for January's Tag Game ~ Nueces ~ Nuts in the Spain & Portugal forum.
