Orange Onion Salad

This is a beautiful, easy salad.  When you section or slice the oranges, catch the juice in a bowl for the dressing.  If you have a long white platter, this is perfect to line up slices for attractive buffet serving.  In bowls, I prefer orange sections and cutting the onion slices in half for easier eating.                 
                            Orange Onion Salad
  2 or 3  Large  Oranges
  1          Large  Red Onion -- sliced paper-thin

Peel oranges, section or slice, removing seeds if needed. 
Alternate slices of orange and onion on lettuce or spinach.

  1. I confess that I call this a spinach salad and I use half the orange in the salad and squeeze the other half as dressing. I add sunflower seeds too...yummy!!!

    Thanks so much!!
