I feel guilty even calling this a recipe. It is an idea, and one of my favorite salads of all time, inspired by a side dish served at New York's Cafe Gitane on Mott Street.
The sweet, juicy oranges, salty, chewy olives, fresh mint and hot chile are an unforgettably delicious combination.
When I am lazy (see picture!) I simply cut the oranges into slices and then into quarters.
Wonderful pared with soft feta sizzling on a dish hot from the oven, drizzled with olive oil and dusted with hot chile pepper flakes. Crusty bread. Heaven. —Marie Viljoen
