Oranges with Cracked Pepper

ingredients
all
3 whole blood oranges
could also use regular oranges
3 tbsp olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
to taste
black olives
optional
If Grandmom Trigiani could find blood oranges, it was a safe bet that you would be treated to the Roseta tradition of sliced oranges as prepared here. But regular oranges work just fine. And sometimes she would top them, Roseta style, with black olives for extra pizzazz.
1
Peel the oranges and slice about .25 inch thick. Remove the seeds.
2
Place the oranges on a plate and drizzle with olive oil.
3
Grind fresh pepper on top. Add olives if using.
4
Serve
