Orange Salad from Sicily

I am looking forward to my next trip to Sicily soon. I was checking some supermarket magazine issues and found some Italian recipes.

Sicily grows a lot of oranges and they have the bloodorange kind. This salad is usually made with these oranges, but I am one month too late for them.
But the recipe goes great with regular oranges.

It is a very fresh starter and the not so common dressing with toasted caraway seeds and fresh mint is a wonderful combination.

recipe for 1 serving: 
1 Orange
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
salt and pepper
1/4 tsp caraway seeds
1/2 tsp chopped pistacchios
6 mint leaves
1/4 red onion
25 goat cream cheese / or feta

Peel the orange down with the white skin and cut it into slices.

Cut fine half onion rings, I blanched them in boiling water for 30 seconds.
Heat up the olive oil and toss in the caraway seeds. Let it popp.
Get it off the heat and wait a couple of seconds and pour in red wine vinegar. When you pour it directly in the hot pan, it will mess up your kitchen.

Season with salt and pepper and chop the mint leaves.
Drop some cheese on top and garnish with pistaccios and onion.
