Moroccan Chilli Orange Olive Salad

Chilli Orange Olive Salad

Surprisingly, oranges and olives go really well together. This Moroccan salad brings them together with some typically Moroccan spices. A simple salad but one with punch. It is a great salad for Winter when the oranges are at their best – ripe and juicy. It IS spicy so add the chilli gradually until you find your taste preferences.
