Sicilian Orange and Basil Salad

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 0 mins

Folks in Sicily keep it easy and fresh. A few ingredients but major taste! The combination of basil, oranges and red onions is a classic.


  1. Peel and section oranges, cut each section in half.
  2. peel red onion and slice it thinly.
  3. tear basil leaves into bite size pieces.
  4. drizzle with red wine vinegar ( you may use more or less than 1/4 C depending on taste).
  5. salt and pepper.
  6. Serve immediately.

I added avocado, since I had a lot of them that I needed to use up. I personally would prefer it with the addition of either avocado or some fruity olive oil. Great recipe; thanks for posting!
