Dani and I first had this salad in blood orange season (late winter/spring) in a trattoria in Syracusa, south east Sicily. It was served 'gratis' while we were waiting for our meal,’ says Janet. Agrodolce translates as 'sweet and sour' and the ingredients are an unlikely combination.Dani regularly makes the 1,600-mile journey from Surbiton to Syracuse to bring back the freshest citrus fruits for the market.
Peel the blood oranges, removing most of the white pith, and slice to approximately 5mm in thickness.
Spread over an attractive serving plate.
Slice the onion very finely and spread lightly over the plate of sliced oranges.
Sprinkle lightly with peperoncino.
Drizzle over with fresh extra-virgin olive oil.
Serve as antipasto and enjoy!
